Internally, Cakewalk stores times as “raw” ticks or clock pulses. The timebase—the number of pulses per quarter note (PPQ)—is adjustable, from 48 to 960 PPQ. If you are using a timebase of 120 PPQ and the project file is in 4/4 time, then a whole measure equals 480 ticks. See Setting the MIDI timing resolution for more information about the timebase.
