How far was Gilgal from Gibeon?

Joshua 10:6 (ESV)

6 And the men of Gibeon sent to Joshua at the camp in Gilgal, saying, “Do not relax your hand from your servants. Come up to us quickly and save us and help us, for all the kings of the Amorites who dwell in the hill country are gathered against us.”

Gilgal was about twenty miles (thirty-two kilometres) away from Gibeon. Travelling from Gilgal to Gibeon would also be uphill, from the Jordan River into the mountains.1
