How do you calculate one square hectare?

If there were any such thing as a square hectare it would measure the hyper-volume of a 4-dimensional object. How you calculate this would depend on the shape of the object. A really easy one would be a hypercube of side 100 meters; this would have a hypervolume of 1 square hectare, or 108 m4. The other answer to this question is that a hectare is already a measure of area; a hectare is 10,000 square meters, or about 2.4 acres. In our normal three dimensional world it makes no sense to square it; just the attempt could make your head hurt.
