What bandwidth values should I set?

I have a website, whose code is hosted by DigitalOcean (1GB Memory/20GB Disk/LON1, the bandwidth setting is not clear). I also use CloudFlare (free plan) on top of DigitalOcean to manage DNSs and caching, etc.

The website is currently blocked from Mainland China. One solution is to move its server to Hong Kong, then the website will be visitable from both western countries and Mainland China.

There are several choices for the server:

1) "Elastic IP" and "pay standard": in this case, I need to choose a maximum bandwidth. My question is, according to the statistics below, how much bandwidth will be sufficient for my current website?

2) "Elastic IP" and "pay-as-you-go": in this case, I need to choose "pay used volume" (where I need to set a peak bandwidth value) or "pay used bandwidth" (where I need to set a bandwidth value). Could anyone tell me which plan suits me best, and especially what value I should set?

PS: my website is not heavily visited, the visiting is quite regular. What I care most is the speed when one visitor loads the website.

Here is the statistics of CloudFlare for the last 24 hours:
