If my figures are correct--
Taking a Trex stride as 1.76m, assuming a stride frequency of 2 seconds
(I believe 2 sec is conservative), and using Stevens' far point of 6 km,
Trex could walk to his limiting far point in ~1.9 hrs. This means that,
assuming visual cues in the form of volant scavengers were available,
Trex could monitor, from a stationary position, ~113 sq km (11340
hectares) with a two hour arrival time...
Of course, this assumes that T.rex is striding about in a completely flat,
treeless desert. :)
He just put some upper bounds on the matter.
