The vertical line on the far right is showing where the marginpar area
starts.  That vertical line is the left margin of the \marginpars.
The distance between the right edge of your box and that vertical line
is \marginparsep.  The width of the marginpar area (i.e., the width of
the margin notes) is \marginparwidth.

You won't need to worry about either of those values as long as you're
not using \marginpars on that page.
