m.measure man page says m.measure provides the user with a way to measure the lengths and areas of lines and polygons. Areas can be stated in acres, hectares, square miles, square meters and square kilometers.

OK, but maybe also mention square feet. (Not tested by me.) As one notes:

Options: miles, feet, meters, kilometers, acres, hectares
