Making sense of Euclidean Distance Output

I am trying to make sense of the distance values displayed after using the Euclidean Distance tool producing a new raster layer. All I want to do is set my distance values to miles. Yet the range of values being displayed are from 0 to 2.40801.


I suspect there is some conversion needing to be done but I have doubts. When I do a quick measurement from a point to cells representing the upper limit of distance (in pink) the results don't seem to indicate a conversion or scaling error.


My Projected Coordinate System is WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere), 1.0 meters as my linear units;

Geographic Coordinate System is WGS 1984; X and Y Cell sizes set to 624.716030130774


A bit of guidance from someone smarter than me would be greatly appreciated.
