The sheppards of the Ketama Hills of Morocco smoke their tobacco in cone shaped pipes called Chillums. They measure distance in pipes, as in the time it takes to smoke one while walking.

My point is that no matter how sophisticated the employment and extrapolation of a standard of measurement is, the nature of that standard is more often than not purely arbitrary.
