A statue mile is the distance typically meant when the word is used without other qualifying words ( e.g. nautical mile). The statue mile is equal to 5,280 ft. A land mile is another term that refers to the statue mile.

A statute mile is used as the imperial measurement primarily in the USA and UK for land based distances. The statue mile equates to 1609.3 metres to one decimal place. The nautical mile, as the name suggests, is the predominant unit of measurement in the maritime world e.g. sea travel, air travel. The nautical mile equates to exactly 1852 metres. Thus, 1 nautical mile = 1.1508 statute miles

A mile on land (a statue mile) is 5280 feet. 5,280 feet = 1,760 yards = 63,360 inches. The current definition of a mile as 5,280 feet was confirmed by statute in the Parliament of England in 1592, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and is accepted as such in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States per a 1959 agreement. A mile on the water (a nautical mile) is 1,852 meters (about 6,076.1 ft).

A section of land is one square mile. A mile is 5,280. Multiply 5,280 by 5,280 and you will have the number of square feet in a section of land.
