You have the wrong syntax.  There is no need for #+CALL: in this

See section of the manual:

code block without arguments
a code block name (from the example above), as assigned by #+NAME:, optionally followed by parentheses
          #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :var length=table-length()
          (* 2 length)
