How do I calculate the values for margin and padding?

I am currently learning how to build a basic website.

Watching this video I had to stop and ask.

How does he know what values to put for margin and padding below header? Is there a logical, quick way to calculating this?

Many thanks!

No, he tested before he recorded the movie clip. In one of his videos he specifies that.
