Thanks Hal:

Again I used my Nautilus bookmark to connect via sftp to the phone.

Then on a PC terminal window I entered "mount". And I printed the 
ensuing list. Each of which entries I checked in another Nautilus 
window, from my PC.

The last entry on the "mount" list was within my PC Home directory, in a 
hidden subdirectory! So the PC address of a representation of my phone's 
root directory was as follows.

~/.gvfs/SFTP for root on

So I tried unsuccessfully variations on the following.

lscpu -s ~/.gvfs/SFTP for root on
