Presumably to make it clearer that they mean "non-zero".  There's
sufficient possibility for confusion over whether 0 qualifies as a
"positive" number that it's often worthwhile to avoid using the term
"positive" when you mean to exclude zero.

The possibility of negative distances is already ruled out earlier in
the prose describing the possible values, so it's unambiguous.
