"high or thick??? "

in Rev 21:17 it says "And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred [and] forty [and] four cubits, [according to] the measure of a man, that is, of the angel." no mention is made of what this measurement is height or thickness. only in the NIV does it say thick but puts a * next to thick and the footnote say "or high". No other version says one way or the other. Given the city is 12,000 Stadia Length, Width, AND Height wouldn't this be the thickness of the wall?? Especially with there most likely being more than one level (probably 12) wouldn’t the wall need to be thick to support the weight??
