Help! My rice cooker is useless! How much is 2 cup of rice?

I have an Aroma 8 Cup Rice Cooker. I was reading the manual and it says:

"The measuring cup included adheres to rice industry standards and is not equal to one U.S. cup. The chart above refers to cups of rice/water according to the measuring cup provided."

What the heck? How much is it then? I must have NOT known what some weird measuring cup was for one day and thrown it out one day, because I can't find it anywhere. I just tore apart the kitchen.

I mean, we got away from the British because of that stupid metric system and now I've got to deal with some rice system.

I want to make between 1-2 cups of rice (real US cups) but don't know how much water to put in.
