The specs on the site show it has a .001 ohm resistance. So they are measuring voltage across a .001 resistance using a microprocessor with an ADC and calculating the values against time. Typically another chip (current sense) that amplifies the voltage across the resistance is used as well.

Re-arrange what's inside the box then...
