From this article on Wikipedia (disputed, however);
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Egyptian_weights_and_measures

1 finger, db = 18¾ mm ≈ .72 inches
1 palm, šsp = 4 db = 75 mm ≈ 2.95 inches
1 hand, drt = 5 db = 93¾ mm ≈ 3.7 inches
1 fist, amm = 6 db = 112½ mm ≈4.4 inches
1 span, spd = 12 db = 225 mm ≈ 8.86 inches
1 foot, bw = 16 db = 300 mm ≈ 0.98 feet
1 remen, rmn = 20 db = 375 mm ≈ 1.23 feet
1 ordinary cubit, mh = 24 db = 6 šsp = 450 mm ≈ 1.48 feet
1 royal cubit, mh = 28 db = 7 šsp = 525 mm ≈ 1.72 feet
1 nibw = 32 db = 8 šsp = 600 mm ≈ 1.97 feet
1 double remen = 40 db = 2 rmn = 750 mm ≈ 2.46 feet
1 rod, h3yt = 280 db = 10 mh (royal) = 5.25 m ≈ 17.22 feet
1 ht, ht n nhw = 2800 db = 10 h3yt = 52.5 m ≈ 57.4 yards
1 minute of march = 9800 db = 350 mh (royal) = 183.75 m ≈ 200.85 yards
1 hour of march, atur, itrw = 588,000 db = 21,000 mh (royal) = 11.025 km ≈ 6.85 miles

1 hand, drt = 5 db = 93¾ mm ≈ 3.7 inches
1 fist, amm = 6 db = 112½ mm ≈4.4 inches
1 span, spd = 12 db = 225 mm ≈ 8.86 inches
1 foot, bw = 16 db = 300 mm ≈ 0.98 feet
1 remen, rmn = 20 db = 375 mm ≈ 1.23 feet
1 ordinary cubit, mh = 24 db = 6 šsp = 450 mm ≈ 1.48 feet
1 royal cubit, mh = 28 db = 7 šsp = 525 mm ≈ 1.72 feet
1 nibw = 32 db = 8 šsp = 600 mm ≈ 1.97 feet
1 double remen = 40 db = 2 rmn = 750 mm ≈ 2.46 feet
1 rod, h3yt = 280 db = 10 mh (royal) = 5.25 m ≈ 17.22 feet
1 ht, ht n nhw = 2800 db = 10 h3yt = 52.5 m ≈ 57.4 yards
1 minute of march = 9800 db = 350 mh (royal) = 183.75 m ≈ 200.85 yards
