Best Answer

This depends on the area you live in and how much area there is.

If you lived in the US, you would more likely measure by hectares, acres, and other units of area.

However, if you live in Great Britain, Asia or Australia and other parts of the world, you would more likely use square meters and centimeters.

Now to your question. Which unit would you use to measure area: square centimeters or square meters?

If I were to draw a square on a piece of paper, it would not match up to a single meter in length so I would measure by square centimeters (GB) or square inches (US). But if I were to measure larger areas such as land, I would measure in square meters (GB) or square feet and hectares (US).
