Now tell me, how does the dyno measure torque?
The dyno doesn't measure torque. All it really measures is acceleration of the drums. It then calculates the power required to achieve that acceleration and finally calculated engine torque using RPM data.
Load bearing dynos also measure the load being applie by the eddy brakes and add that back into the calculated power.
