Unlikely, because the use of the "mile" as we know it today, was not known 12,000 years ago. The very concept of the mile is based on a roman measurement meaning 1000 which was measured by the distance a legionnaire traveled by counting a thousand steps (either the left or right side). A key point is the legions marched on roads, so each measurement was pretty close, and was eventually standardized.

The people who built Gobekli Tepe did not (a) have roads or (b) march standardized military units. So they didn't have miles.
