I haven't tested this but it should work..
 {ffmpeg-cmd} -i {input} -i
/wherever/watermark/is/located/watermark.png  -vcodec libx264 -s
{ffmpeg-vsize} -threads 4
-movflags faststart -filter_complex
"overlay=main_w-overlay_w-10:10" {output}.mp4

If you don't specify a path, ffmpeg will assume that's it's your current
working directory. You can specify the full path, so instead of
watermark.png, something like /home/user/Downloads/watermark.png, or
wherever your watermark is located.

There should be no need for this as you should be able to get support here,
but if you wish to donate to the development of ffmpeg
