1 inch = 2.54 cm (exactly) 
36 in = 36*2.54 cm = 91.44 cm 
1 yard = 36 in = 91.44 cm 
220 yds = 220*91.44 cm = 20116.8 cm 
1 furlong = 220*91.44 cm = 20116.8 cm 

1 fortnight = 14 days 
  = 14 days * 24 hr/day = 336 hr 
  = 336 hr * 3600 sec/hr 
  = 1209600 sec 

1 furlong/fortnight = 20116.8 cm / 1209600 sec 
497 furlongs/fortnight = (497 * 20116.8 / 1209600) cm/sec 
  ≈ 8.266 cm/sec
