A mile was a measure of distance from Earth's Imperial system of measurements. On Stardate 1512.2, Lieutenant Commander Spock noted that the Fesarius was "a mile in diameter." Ben Childress' quarters were located "about eleven miles" from the mining company on Rigel XII in 2266.
A pound was a measure of weight from Earth's imperial system of measurements; 2.2 pounds were about equal to one kilogram from the metric system. On Stardate 1512.2, Doctor McCoy changed Captain Kirk's diet card to include more salad, as his "weight was up a couple of pounds."
