I don't think that's the basis.  When I look at ye olde measurements,
there's one thing that I do notice, the unit sizes are convenient sizes
to measure things in.  The inch is not too big, not too small, quite a
good base unit for measuring something in.  Likewise, with the foot, and
being reasonably good at estimating the size of things bigger than a
foot.  A yard, as the next size up, is a convenient length to measure
certain things with.
