  Kilometre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A kilometre (American spelling: kilometer), symbol: km is a unit of length in the metric system equal to 1000 metres (from the Greek words χίλια (khilia) = thousand and μέτρο (metro) = count/measure).
Like the kilometre, all units of length in the metric system are based on the metre, by adding an SI prefix that stands for a power of ten, such as hecto for one hundred to form hectometre (= 0.1 kilometre) or mega for one million to form megametre (= 1,000 kilometre).
Unicode has symbols for "km" (㎞), for square kilometre (㎢) and for cubic kilometre (㎦); however, they are useful only in CJK texts, where they are equal in size to one Chinese character.

Square kilometre (U.S. spelling: square kilometer), symbol km2, is a decimal multiple of SI unit of surface area square metre, one of the SI derived units.1 km2 is equal to: the area of a square measuring 1 kilometre on each side1 000 000 m
The square metre (also spelled meter, see spelling differences) is the SI derived unit of area, with symbol m².
The square metre is derived from the SI base unit of the metre, which in turn is defined as the length of the path travelled by light in absolute vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second.

Adding SI prefixes creates multiples and submultiples; however, as the unit is squared, the order of magnitude difference between units doubles from their comparable linear units.
For example, a kilometre is one thousand times the length of a metre, but a square kilometre is one million times the area of a square metre.
