Question about English (US)

May I have a question? Could you tell me if it's grammatical and common to say "three, four..(several) times + noun" when the noun doesn't carry the meaning of "measurement, size, degree" such as "rate", "size", "amount"..
For example,
1. "The fire we’re watching with our own eyes is giving off nearly twice the radiation released by the bomb in Hiroshima."
2. "You should be paying the Ronsons ten times this."
3. "It’ll make your speed and agility twice what it was. "
4. "I’m twice the man you are."
