That's a sedge, pronounced "nsw" not a lotus flower, David. The Lotus flower symbol "kha" is used for the number 1000, yes.

For example, 1/1000 would be written as "Re/kha"

In this case, the royal attribute (ie adjective) is placed before the noun, that's called honorific transposition, but pronounced with the adjective after the noun, as Egyptian grammar usually requires.
So: Written as Neswt mh, but pronounced "Meh Neswt" ...cubit royale

A royal cubit is geometrically defined as 1 x π/6, i.e. 1/6 of a circle whose diameter is 1 meter.
It has 7 palms, or 28 fingers.
The observed value depends on where it is measured and we covered this elsewhere already.
The standard cubit "meh nedjes" had 6 palms or 24 fingers.


The arm symbol can also mean a centi-aroura which is 1/100 of an aroura (10,000 square cubits).
The other way to spell "cubit" therefore was not the arm symbol but Gardiner V23
