World ranking of the cities by lenght of highways/expressways

Does anyone have such figures??? There's already a thread about countries, but not about cities yet.

Define a city.

City proper / municipality?
Metropolitan area?
Commuter belt?
State / province / county / region?

There are apparently at least 5 definitions of a "metro area".
