There is more than one 'Cubit', often it differed from city to city, much like in middelage europe. (where the unit of measure called was an 'el').

I only remember the length of the Cubit at Giza, as I
remember it Newton said it was 17.17666666.. inches,
and he is supposed to have been correct.
I'm not sure what the current accepted measurement is
but it think it pretty close to that. Sorry I have no
documentation available to be sure.

The measures are determined by analysis of large amounts
of measurements of structures at a site and finding a
common unit mathematically.
