Usually it would be the first folder where your site is located in.
Are you sure that you can do this with dropbox? It can host websites but it is very limited.

You would probably get better help with this on Dropboxes forum/Help Center.

I'm assuming this is for something like Google's Web Master Tools, or Analytics? The root of your website is the same folder that your index.html is saved in.

That said I really don't recommend serving website from your Dropbox, while it is a great service, there are a couple of great free webhosts out there, AwardSpace is worth looking into.
