It appears to me that you're citing your own Wiki entry. You also left out a source that more competently explains how the "basket" might be construed as containing a quantity of hekats from a cylindrical container:
A new interpretation of Problem 10 of the Moscow Mathematical Papyrus
Historia Mathematica 37 (2010) 11-27
Available online 28 October 2009.
Although much discussed, the original intent of Problem 10 of the Moscow Mathematical Papyrus continues to be an unresolved question. This essay proposes a possible solution to the issue by joining together aspects of two theories on the subject advanced in the 1930s by W. W. Struve and T. E. Peet. From this point of beginning it is shown that the problem's "basket" may originally have been intended to be understood as being of a specific actual size, thus revealing a set of correlations and insights regarding early Middle Kingdom mathematical capabilities and grain measurement concerns.
