Yoren states that they have to travel "a thousand leagues" from King's Landing to the Wall. Depending on the exact measurement of a league (varying from 3 to 3.45 miles in English-speaking regions), this would amount to a journey of at least 3,000 miles. The continent of Westeros, measured from the Wall to the southern sea, is said to be less than 2,000 miles. The journey from King's Landing to the Wall would be around 1,000 miles, so either Yoren's statement is way off, or a league is measured differently in Westeros. See more »
