killa = acre

Explanation:
We do not have equivalent units in English for all these units. Here is the relationship:

Killa (ਕਿੱਲਾ) = 1 Acre

Marrabba (ਮਰੱਬਾ)= 25 kille (ਕਿੱਲੇ)/acres
1 Acre = 8 Kanal (ਕਨਾਲ)
1 Kanal = 20 Marala (ਮਰਲਾ)
1 Marala = 30.25 square yards = 25.2928 Square Metres

or

Marrabba = 25 kille/Acres
Kanal = 1/8th Acre = 605 Square Yards =505.86 Square Metres
Marala = 1/20th of a Kanal (hence = 1/160th of an acre) = 30.25 square yards = 25.2928 Square Metres

1 sq inch = 6.45159 sq cm = 0.06452 sq m
1 sq feet = 144 sq inch = 9.29028 sq deci = 0.11111 sq yard = 0.0929 sq m
1 sq yards = 9 sq feet = 0.836126 sq m = 0.0330578 Marla
1 sq metres = 10.76 sq feet = 1.19599 sq yards = 0.03954 Marla
1 Marla = 30.25 sq yards = 25.2928 sq m = 272.25 sq feet = 0.00625 Acre = 0.05 Kanal
1 Kanal = 20 Marlas = 605 sq yards = 505.86 sq m = 0.125 Acre = 0.050585 Hectare
1 Acre/Killa = 4840 sq yards = 4046.86 sq m = 160 Marlas = 8 Kanals = 0.40468 Hectare = 0.004047 sq km
1 Hectare = 2.471047 Acres = 11959.9 sq yards = 10000 sq m = 19.769 Kanals = 395.3696 Marlas.
1 sq km = 0.386102 sq mile = 247.1047 Acres = 100 Hectares = 1195990 sq yards
