How far was Great Sidon from the waters of Merom?

Joshua 11:8 (ESV)

8 And the LORD gave them into the hand of Israel, who struck them and chased them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim, and eastward as far as the Valley of Mizpeh. And they struck them until he left none remaining.

The armies of Israel chased the Canaanites northwest to Great Sidon. This was a distance of more than twenty miles (thirty-two kilometres).
