You may want to re-read the section on scaling durations. Math is used to force 
lilypond to make a note take up the mathematically appropriate amount of time 
and space using the note duration you specify. So c4*x will always produce a 
quarter note whose horizontal space takes up the value specified by x. 
Accordingly, c1*4 produces a whole note whose horizontal space is equivalent to 
4 whole notes, which is exactly what you get.
