I thought the game measured things in yards. You can measure things by the distance you can cast stuff at or paladin auras. And what about ocean distance. We don't know the size of the ocean. There are other islands which means more land mass.Just a thought.

We cann't assume that Azeroth yard is equal to any yard on Earth.

We're talking measurements here.. lol. They could be measuring in taco-sauce packets, but it still in scale, and can be converted from any one unit of distance to any other unit of distance.

Yards might indeed be the scale of the battles, but there's no telling if that has any relation to the size of the landscape. Artistic license fits in there somewhere, so you have to take the measurements with a grain of salt. FFXI solved the problem by making the "days" quite a bit shorter, so that an in-game week would take just a few hours, giving things a better sense of scale. Unfortunately, Azerothian time is scaled to that of Earth, so there's no way of using the in-game metrics to get an accurate representation of the world, or at least of reconciling the world in the game with that in the books.
