Is there a syntax that will allow me to run "wp cron event run" as a Siteground cron job?

I found this example that runs through a third party application. I'm wondering if this command can be run as a Siteground cron job: $ wp cron event run --all --ssh=cale17.sg-host.com/home/customer/www/cale17.sg-host.com/public_html

I've tried several iterations, and I get this error:

Error: This does not seem to be a WordPress installation. The used path is: /home/customer/mydomain.com/ Pass --path=path/to/wordpress or run wp core download.
