ETA: A few trips through the Bajoran wormhole would easily eclipse the distance traveled by USS Voyager.
But the whole thing about a wormhole is that the distance through them is shorter than the distance going "around" them.

The impression I received from DS9 is that the distance through the wormhole is relatively short, maybe only a small number of miles.

If you do that for wormholes, you must do that for warp and all other FTL systems.
The distance traversed by a ship at warp, being space-time bent by warp engines, is far shorter than the unaltered space-time, for example.

By this criterion, a ship which used conventional engines to circle the solar system travelled more than ships that reached other galaxies, etc.
