Say I have 100GB of FLAC with compression 8.
By how much would it inflate if I converted it all to compression level 0.
The music is mostly pop-rock.

From that graph, FLAC 8 will be only 7,56% better than FLAC 0. So that would lead to 107,56 GB instead of 100GB.

Close. Actually, those are percentages of the WAV files. At 65.83%, 100 GB of FLAC -8 files would decode into 151.906 GB of WAV files. 71.21% of that (FLAC -0) is 108.173 GB.
