If this was set just 11 years beforehand I’d have to do a fuck more looking up measurements. Thankfully they used modern miles as standard from then, due to Queen Liz

from wikipedia:
35 Elizabeth c. 6 (1593)[57]
An Act against converting of great Houses into several Tenements, and for Restraint of Inmates and Inclosures, in and near about the City of London and Westminster.
“… A Mile shall contain eight Furlongs, every Furlong forty Poles, and every Pole shall contain sixteen Foot and an half.”[58]
This is the codification and namesake of the statute mile.

Also welsh miles beforehand (’cause wales was conquered by the english) were like 6 miles, they were set by a Welsh King called the Bald and Silent https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyfnwal_Moelmud
