English translation:litet tumbler(-glas)
Explanation:
I don't know that there is an equivalent of "squat" in Swedish used in this context, but squat means short and thick, low and broad.
The term "tumbler" is used in Swedish, so you might just use the above suggestion and possibly incorporate the idea that it is also a wide glass. See the link below for pictures. Or, depending on the context, you might want to pub "squat" in quotations if the audience is knowledgable about drinks.
