Traditionally a cubit is from a man's elbow to the tip of the middle finger. 45.72cm or 18 inches or 1 foot 6 inches.
In large-scale construction projects, ancient civilizations typically used the royal cubit (about 19.8–20.6 in [52 cm]). The Bible offers some input in 2 Chronicles 3:3, which reveals that Solomon used an older (long) cubit in construction of the temple.
