It's possible to measure distances with time - for instance "How far away is the cafe?" "About 5 minutes." But you can't measure time with distances - for instance "How long is this film?" "About 3 miles." amirite?

It takes five minutes to get to the cafe.
A movie isn't 3 miles...

time is also how gps works, and it was a vital part of navigating a ship a few centuries ago.

no, you don't really measure distances with time, you measure distances with how long it's going to take to CROSS IT.
how far away/how long will i have to move? "5 minutes of walking"
how long is the film/how long will i have to wait?"2 hours of waiting"
