It's about one-one-thousandth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 1,000 times 0.011 kilometers.
(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.
It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 2,400 times 0.011 kilometers.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 27 km. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 6,500 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness)
In other words, the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00015 times 0.011 kilometers.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.00000170 kilometers in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about one-seven-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The Panama Canal
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 7,700 times 0.011 kilometers.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 88 kilometers in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 0.026 kilometers above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about 9,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 0.011 kilometers is 8,800 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000114 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.000001250 kilometers. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 0.0151 kilometers in height.
It's about one-nine-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The English Channel
In other words, 0.011 kilometers is 0.000103 times the length of The English Channel, and the length of The English Channel is 9,710 times that amount.
(average width between Isle of Ushant and The Walde Lighthouse) (La Manche, Ärmelkanal, Mor Breizh, Mor Bretannek) (a.k.a. The Channel)
The English Channel measures between 180 km to 34 km, narrowing as it flows northeast. The world speed record for a Channel crossing by swimmer was set by Australian Trent Grimsey in 2012, with a time of 6 hours, 55 minutes.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as long as The 405
In other words, 0.011 kilometers is 0.0000943880 times the length of The 405, and the length of The 405 is 10,595 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 116.541 km. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
