Detto questo s'alzò


New Member
Hey, first time here. I was reading Cuore, and came across this sentence: Detto questo s'alzò e segnò sulla carta murale d'Italia il punto dov'è Reggio di Calabria.
So the teacher has said something, and having done, he rose. My question is, what does the questo here stands for? Does it mean "he", or simply "this"
I know s' is a reflexive pronoun, the second one seems more likely, but i cant be sure.
Just a beginner in Italian, apologies for this silliness
