Roughly speaking = approximately, lacking precision. In a nutshell = concisely, using few words.

"Roughly speaking" means "speaking generally" - used for giving information that is general and not exact. - Roughly speaking, it'll take eight days. "In a nutshell" can mean either "in summary" or "in brief" - In a nutshell, it can't be done!
