use scale

a millimeter

You must first decide what you want to measure about the rice grains: their length, circumference, mass, weight, volume, color, elasticity, etc.

Personally, I would measure the length of a grain of rice in millimeters.

It is not possible to give a sensible answer to the question. A square metre is a measure of area in 2-dimensional space whereas the mass of rice depends on the volume - a 3-dimensional measure - of rice. The height of the pile of rice will affect the mass of rice.

mass is best measured by fluid volume displacement

You can use a precision scale that measures in milligrams, place the grain of rice on the scale, and note the weight displayed. Alternatively, you could use a balance scale and known weights to find the weight of the rice by comparing it to the known weights.

You would measure a rice plant (or perhaps the length of a rice field) in meters. You would generally measure a container of rice grains (for cooking or eating) in kilograms, unless you were concerned about how much space it would take up on a shelf or something like that.

Some recipes measure rice in cups. In 225 grams of rice there would be approximately just one cup of rice.

The volume is best measured in millilitres still. The weight is the best approach for this. To measure size i.e. width in particular, a millimetre is a good unit to use.
