"El Chapo" in local slang culiacan is not so much "shorty"and certaily not dwarf" but refers nore to that short, strong-stocky, endomorphic body-type so common in Mexico. No direct eqivalent translation.

It means "Dwarf." Joaquin Guzman is short and, therefore, referred to as "El Chapo."

El Chapo in English
by: Clint Tustison

From what I understand, the term "chapo" comes from the word "chaparrito", which means very short in Mexican Spanish.

So taking it from there, I would say that El Chapo is equivalent to something like Shorty or Short Stuff. But I think it is only used in Mexican Spanish. I don't think it's used in Central or South America.
