If you have the filefrag program, you can just do 

# filefrag -v /var/cache/swap  | head
Checking /var/cache/swap
Filesystem type is: ef53
Filesystem cylinder groups is approximately 578
Blocksize of file /var/cache/swap is 4096
File size of /var/cache/swap is 1073741824 (262144 blocks)
First block: 13778944
Last block: 14406757
Discontinuity: Block 6137 is at 13785112 (was 13785087)
Discontinuity: Block 12251 is at 13791992 (was 13791231)

So the first block is 13778944.  So the byte offset is 4096*13778944
or 56438554624.
