This is one of those areas where there is ambiguity.

A 9 cm square is a square whose sides are 9 cm and which therefore has an area of 81 cm2.

But 9 cm2 represents an area of 9 square centimetres. The shape of this area is unspecified.

When written in the above form, the ambiguity is less obvious but in spoken form it is.
