area within the boundaries or corporate limits


Explanation:
If it is municipal terminology, one could also say area (ie. square miles, square meters, acres, hectares, or whatever units are used in the country in which the document originated) within the corporate limits, if it's a city or town. Altura sobre el mar is usually called height or altitude above sea level in English, again measured in feet, meters, miles, or kilometers, depending on the country and the distance.
