It's about twenty times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, 34.640 leas is 24.10 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.0415 times that amount.(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 1.440 leas (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 1.440 leas, and later converted to the metric units used today).

The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 1.30 leas. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about thirty times as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 34.640 leas is 27.250 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.0367 times that amount.(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)

In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.03 times 34.640 leas.(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 1 leas. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.

In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 34 times 34.640 leas.(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 1,200 leas in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 0.360 leas above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
