Could someone tell me more about the reference value in the Fluent? I found that it is going to affect my result (x-y plot) if I change the reference value like velocity.

I suggest you have to specify you question with further details. In some cases yes, for e.g. Boussinesq approximation for bouyancy.

when changing results from to coefficients for example pressure to Cp the reference value enered here will be used to calculate the dynamic prssure and therefore will have a large effect on the results.

these should generally reflect the freestream values if these are known.
