싱크로 is synchro. As in synchronize, synchro means to happen at the same time. 율 means ratio.

When Koreans use 싱크로율, it has nothing to do with actions. It is about the similarity. It is usually used a lot with appearances. When some people look similar, Koreans sometimes call it as "싱크로율이 높다" or "싱크로율 100%".

따로 봤을 때는 몰랐는데, 붙여 놓고 보니까 완전 싱크로율 100%인데?
When I saw them separately, I didn't know it but after looking at them together, they are really similar.

그 배우와 원작의 주인공은 싱크로율이 완벽하다.
The main character in the cartoon and the actor are amazingly similar.
