It's about two-fifths as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral
In other words, 0.0685 kilometers is 0.3940 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 2.540 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 0.1740 kilometers to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).

In other words, 0.0685 kilometers is 0.3720 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 2.690 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.1840 kilometers tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).

(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.2270 kilometers above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about three-and-a-half times as long as a Cricket Pitch
In other words, 0.0685 kilometers is 3.405110 times the length of a Cricket Pitch, and the length of a Cricket Pitch is 0.2936760 times that amount.
(per Marylebone Cricket Council / International Cricket Council Law #6)
The length of a cricket pitch, from one bowling crease to the other, is 0.0201168 kilometers. The wickets at either end of the pitch stand 0.00072 kilometers tall including the bails.
It's about three-and-a-half times as long as a Bowling Lane
In other words, 0.0685 kilometers is 3.57590 times the length of a Bowling Lane, and the length of a Bowling Lane is 0.279650 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin; including pin deck)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling lane should measure 0.019156 kilometers. In a Professional Bowling Association game, the lane must be lubricated by about 25 ml (0.85 fl. oz) of oil.

(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 0.2940 kilometers. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9.6 million km, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about four-and-a-half times as tall as The Hollywood Sign
In other words, the height of The Hollywood Sign is 0.220 times 0.0685 kilometers.
(a.k.a. Hollywoodland Sign) (Mount Lee, Hollywood Hills, Santa Monica Mountains, California)
Each of the white letters in the Hollywood Sign measures 0.015 kilometers tall. Built as an advertisement in 1923, the sign was intended to stand for only eighteen months.
