I think the longest, CAB-STACK-3M, is only 3 metres.

I believe Leo is correct, i.e. longest cable is 3m.

If the 7m is between individual units, you're out of luck connecting them as a stack.  If the 7m is between "top" and "bottom" unit, what might work for you is connecting 1 to 2 and 3, and 4 to 2 and 3.  You could also just connect 1<>2<>3<>4, they will work as a stack, but then you lose stack redundancy and half your stack's bandwidth.  Lastly, you might stack 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and interconnect the two stacks using normal port cables, perhaps with Etherchannel, if you have "extra" ports.
