A huge SUV would have a cargo capacity of about 4 cubic meters. The largest truck that uhaul rents [uhaul.com] is about 45 cubic meters. A tractor trailer holds about 110 cubic meters.

Dividing down one person's measurement of an arbitrary planet's circumference by an arbitrary power of 10 is hardly more logical than a length picked at random. Trying to work out a subsequent system of weights and measures based on that distance and a material that doesn't exist most places in the universe but still conveniently measures things found in daily life hasn't left us that much better off than the Imperial system (what's a liter? one cubic decimeter?! what's a gram? the mass of one milliliter of water?!)
