Opencv pose estimation Translation scale?

Based on this tutorial: http://opencv-python-tutroals.readthe...

I need to compute the pose of a checkerboard wrt the camera. However, It seems that while my rotation matrix is correct. My translation component seems completely off. In fact, it looks like it's a unit vector. How exactly would I scale the vector to make sure that it's the actual distance?

I would check the calibration matrix (the unit of the focal length for example) or the unit when you defined the chessboard corners coordinates in 3D (object points).
