What size of land would be required to supply the aviation industry with the sufficient amount of biojetfuel, should a biofuel revolution take place?

Six times the area of all the fields in the world.
That is, 68 percent of the total land area on Earth.

Let me explain why.
Earlier this year, a long-distance flight was performed by Qantas, using 10% biofuel. 150 acres of mustard was required for this flight.
Suppose that we would replace all fossil jetfuel with 100% biojetfuel with the same area requirements as Qantas' flight.
Also, suppose that roughly 1/4 of all flights are long-distance & that short-distance flights require 75% less fuel than long-distance.
