Several huge fireballs explode, seemingly from Alduin (though perhaps also mages going by the dialogue).

The average height of a Norwegian man is 179.9cm, or 1.799m (closest equivalent to a Nord I could find).

184 pixels = 1.799m
1 pixel = 1.799m/184 = 0.00977717391m
0.00977717391m X 497 = 4.85925543m
Spoiler:

Timeframe is 0.19 seconds.

17 pixels = 4.85925543m
1 pixel = 4.85925543m/17 = 0.285838555m
0.285838555m X 66 = 18.8653446m
18.8653446m/2 = 9.4326723m
0.285838555m X 103 = 29.4413712m
29.4413712m/2 = 14.7206856m

T = 14.7206856m/0.19s
= 77.4772926m/s

Volume as half an ellipsoid.

V = 4/3πabc
= 4/3 X π X 9.4326723 X 14.7206856 X 14.7206856
= 8562.08294m^3

We see dust getting thrown up as the green fire recedes. Weight of a dustcloud/air is 1.003kg per m^3.

M = 8562.08294 X 1.003
= 8587.76919kg

KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 8587.76919 X 77.4772926^2
= 25775033.6 joules
= 0.006160380879541 tons of TNT

Not the most impressive in firepower. How about speed?
Spoiler:

Timeframe is 0.32 seconds.

15 pixels = 4.85925543m
1 pixel = 4.85925543m/15 = 0.323950362m
0.323950362m X 674 = 218.342544m

T = 218.342544m/0.32s
= 682.32045/340.29
= Mach 2.00511461

Final Results
Fireballs explode near Winterhold (energy) = 0.006 tons of TNT
Fireballs explode near Winterhold (speed) = Mach 2.005
