Canon 60D video files

Hi

Just purchased the Canon 60D. I am using a Patriot 16gb SDHC Class 10 card.
I read that a 16gb card should hold 160 minutes of video.
So why is it when I shoot a video (720p) that is 4:45 it size is 1.56 GB
That does not sound like I can record 160 mins of video.
More like 35 minutes

Why are the files so large?

Thanks
