Hell of an approximation!

"The six "SmallSats" will orbit Earth approximately 22,000 miles (35,405.568km) away in a circular formation."

That Km conversion is remarkably precise for an approximation but can we have it in the Internationally recognised units, please? For reference - and to save on keystrokes for the update - it's about 252,902,632 Linquine. For readers in the Southern Hemisphere who prefer a more local equivalent, fractionally under 5,807,909 Giraffes.
