It's about one-fifty-five-thousandth as long as The 405.
In other words, 4.80 cubits is 0.0000188310 times the length of The 405, and the length of The 405 is 53,104 times that amount.
(a.k.a. I-405, Interstate 405, San DIego Freeway) (Southern California)
Running from Irvine to San Fernando, The 405 runs a total of 254,900 cubits. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
It's about one-fifty-five-thousandth as long as Hadrian's Wall.
In other words, the length of Hadrian's Wall is 56,000 times 4.80 cubits.
(a.k.a. Roman Wall, a.k.a. The Wall, a.k.a. Vallo di Adriano, a.k.a. Vallum Aelium, a.k.a. Severus' Wall) (from North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England, United Kingdom to Cumbria, North West England, United Kingdom)
Hadrian's Wall, which crossed England form the North Sea to the Irish Sea during the time of Roman rule, measures 260,000 cubits (about 79 Roman miles). Roman soldiers — at one time up to 10,000 of them — only occupied Great Britain for about 246 years after the wall was built, after which time the local Brits began to take residence the wall's garrisons.
It's about one-two-hundred-thousandth as long as The Grand Canyon.

(a.k.a. RBCs, a.k.a. haematids, a.k.a. erythrocyte, a.k.a. erythroid cells, a.k.a. red blood corpuscles) An average Red Blood Cell measures 7.5 µm (micrometers) in diameter. An average human has 20 - 30 trillion red blood cells in their body and each cell completes a circulatory lap in about 20 seconds.
It's about 350,000 times as long as a Nucleus (Cellular).
In other words, the length of a Nucleus (Cellular) is 0.00000270 times 4.80 cubits.
(for animal cell)
The nucleus of an animal cell measures an average of 0.0000130 cubits. The nucleus is the largest organelle in these cells, accounting for about 10% of the cell's total volume.
