It's about 0.000000009 times as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 0.0000000990 kilometers is 0.00000000900 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 110,000,000 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 11 km. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
