This gradient equation must be integrated, giving an integration constant to be determined. Some mathematicians resolve this by requiring the the average of the pressure over the problem domain be zero. Otherwise it can be resolved by setting the pressure to an assigned value at some point in the domain. The flow equations can be solved without reference to the pressure, so the reference pressure becomes an issue only if you want to evaluate the pressure (as a function of the flow velocity).
