That is a good point. What do we mean by fast and loose with the numbers
is it possible to establish a testable hypothesis here?

How about edge to edge.
For example suppose we use only whole integer Egyptian units of measure,
if we find recognizable whole integer increments of English measures,
in the principle proportions, edge to edge, like in the following example,
does that make what you would consider an adequate correlation?

Here I have used just the base, height, apothem and perimeter of the Great Pyramid
in units based on even integer fractions of a cubit to see what proportions are
expressed. Note all base, height and perimeter measures are in even units.
The best match for all factors is in cubits, no other unit of measure works
as well
No matter how you measure it the PI relation is a given
In every case the apothem divided by half the base is
close to 1.6181 or phi, but closest measured in cubits or feet
you will note that the perimeter in cubits gives the number of yards in a mile.
the perimeter in inches gives the number of days in a century
the base in units of 1/12 cubit gives the number of feet in a mile
the square on the height is equal to the area of the sloped side
The least best correlation is with the apothem to a stadia, 608.73 English feet
a stadia is supposed to be 24902.72727/360*600 and to equal 600 feet
The most startling results are
units base base/2 perimeter height apothem
cubits 440.00 220 * 1760.00 * 280.00 356.09
1/24 cubit 10560.00 * 5280 * 42240.00 6720.00 8546.16
1/12 cubit * 5280.00 * 2640 21120.00 3360.00 4273.08
1/8 cubit 3520.00 * 1760 * 14080.00 2240.00 2848.72
inches 9131.00 4565.5 *36524.00 * 5813.00 7391.53
and indeed
100 x 365.24 x 24 x 60 x 60/ 24902.72727 x 5280 x 12 x 2 = 1
there are twice as many seconds in a century as inches
in the circumference of the earth at the equator
and
360/24902.72727 = 5280/365.24 x 1000
the length of an Egyptian year in days divided
by the circumference of the Earth at the equator in miles
is directly proportional to the number of feet in a mile
divided by the number of days in a millenia
