Why is the flow result of the porous media model incorrect?

My model is a simple rectangular parallelepiped medium

10*10*50 mm

Permeability 1 D

Entrance pressure 1000000 pa.

Export pressure 0 pa

Water density 1000 kg/m3

Viscosity 1 mpa.s

If calculated using the permeability formula

The flow rate Q should be (1*9.869*1)/(1*5)=1.9738 cm3/s=1.9738*10^-6 m3/s

Formula calculation results are different from simulation results

Is this because of the error generated by the simulation?

Or is there a problem with the parameters I set?

The formula is neglecting convective and diffusion transport but though the results are not far from one another. You can try if physical velocity would enhance the run.
