That is for commercial use. I was thinking the same thing, 64 speakers seems like a lot even for a very large cinema movie theater. I don't think they are required to use that many though, I'm sure they can install much less.
I think for home owners that go the Atmos surround sound route most will settle for 5.1.2 with a smaller percentage going for 7.1.2 or even 7.1.4. People with a large dedicated home theater room (projector style) maybe 9.1.4/9.2.4 or even 11.1.4/11.2.4.
Manufacturers only use HDMI (no coax) to carrier the high def digital data signal for video and audio because of the required content protection (HDCP). You can use the same HDMI cables you are already using for HD Audio/1080p/4K.
