kalpa and yojana measurements


What are kalpa and yojana measurements in Buddhist Cosmology?

Mahābrahmā is 1 ½ yojanas tall.
His lifespan variously said to be 1 kalpa (Vibhajyavāda tradition)

What is the correct interpretation for 'kalpa' and 'yojana' measurements?

(Hope you don't get deceived by the false interpretations of mainstream Buddhism.)

Additional Details

@John the Buddhist,-Lotus fan 卐卐,
If I say, 'kalpa' and 'yojana' measurements relate to ideas like Chittaksha, not the conventional measurements, would you consider that?
