Normally the gain is defined by the relation Vout / Vin for a signal having voltage Vin. I presume that is the same with a car antenna, assuming that the signal received by the antenna is converted to voltage.

PS: Google does wonders!

Gain is as cumesoftware stated.

What specification did your car booster say on the packaging? Typically they are 10 to 20 dB gain.
