Either the civilization had some knowledge of geometry or they would not understand the term

Your knowledge in geometry would be a big help in studying trigonometry, because trigonmetry involves the ratio of the sides of a right triangle, something that is underpinned by geometry. The pythagorean theorem is crucial here. Also, the angles are important, and that is also underpinned by geometry.

The Greeks could learn that Greece is not as big as the circumference of the Earth. This would lead to new countries, like America.
