Unit Definition (league)
The league became a common unit of measurement throughout western Europe, although its length varied greatly from region to region. It was originally intended to represent the distance a person could walk in an hour. In many cases it was equal to 3 miles, (note that the definition of a mile also varied from region to region). At sea, the league was often equal to 3 nautical miles, which is 1/20 degree or 5556 meters (metres). In the USA and Great Britain, the league is defined to be 3 statute miles (~4828.03 meters) on land, or 3 nautical miles at sea.

Unit Definition (yard)
The yard is a fundamental unit of length in both the U.S. Customary System and the British Imperial System. Originally taken to be the average length of a stride, the yard is actually equal to 3 feet; defined as 91.44 centimeters
