It's about one-nine-thousandth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 1 meters is 0.0001091 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 9,166 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 9,168 m above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.

(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
It's about 10,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.0001 times 1 meters.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0001 meters thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 1 meters is 0.0000917260 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 10,902 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 10,902 meters below sea level. The first manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep took 4 hours and 48 minutes in 1960. This was the only manned descent to the floor of the Trench until 2012, when director James Cameron made the trip; several other descents have been made since then.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 11,000 times 1 meters.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 11,000 meters. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 27,000 times 1 meters.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 27,000 meters. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
