Default Distance for Hearing/Vision rolls?

OK, in my Fantasy campaign, I've got a Hearing/Vision contest coming up in my next session, and I want to do it right.
Situation: PC on night watch for a caravan, and a 10-man group of orcs (with Night Vision 5) is heading towards the PC for an attack.

• the Orcs are not using stealth; they're moving at Speed of 4.
• I'm figuring this gives a +2 on hearing them, accounting for the size of the group.
• It's a cloudy night, so -4 to the PC's Vision rolls.
• the PC is standing behind a torch, and doesn't have any Night Vision (I'm expecting they'll learn from this mistake-assuming they survive <eg>)

With a Perception of 12, and +2 for hearing based on group size, and -4 for a cloudy night; IF the PC rolls a '12' HOW FAR AWAY does he see or hear the orcs??
