Re: How many Kanals in one acre?
I found this definition:
http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/dictK.html
kanal
a traditional unit of land area in Pakistan, equal to 20 marlas. Under British rule the marla and kanal were standardized so that the kanal equals exactly 605 square yards or 1/8 acre; this is equivalent to about 505.857 square meters.

Re: How many Kanals in one acre?
The above answer is correct for most of India as well, and is based on 180 square karam, where a karam is a unit of 66" or 5.5' (one third of a rod).
However, according to this, http://punjabrevenue.nic.in/lr6.htm
(see table near end), there are some areas where the karam was NOT standardized and has lengths varying from 5460". There the kanal is still 180 sq. karam, but smaller because the karam is smaller. Four different nonstandard values are given, and in those provinces, a kanal would be only 3645 to 4500 ft² instead of the standard 5445 ft². In other words, don't believe a kanal until it is surveyed in "real" units, square meters as both countries are metric now.

1 karam = 2 ft. steps = 5.5 ft. = 1.67 m
1 sq. Karam = 5.5 x 5.5 ft. = (5.5)2 ft.2 = 30.25 ft.2 or
1 sq. Karam = 1.67 x 1.67 m = (1.67)2 m2 = 2.679 m2
Marla (مرلہ)
1 Marla = 9 sq. Karam = 9 x (5.5)2 ft.2= 9 x 30.25 ft.2 = 272.24 ft.2 or
1 Marla = 9 sq. Karam = 9 x (1.67)2 m2= 9 x 2.789 m2 = 25.10 m2
1 Marla = 9 sq. Karam = 25.10 m2 = 272.24 ft.2
Kanal (کنال)
1 Kanal (K) = 20 Marla = 20 x 272.24 ft.2 = 5444.8 ft.2 (since, 1 Marla = 272.24 ft.2) or
1 Kanal (K) = 20 Marla = 20 x 25.10 m2 = 502 m2 (since, 1 Marla = 25.10 m2) or
1 Kanal (K) = 20 Marla = 20 x 9 sq. Karam = 180 sq. Karam (since 1 Marla = 9 sq. Karam)
1 Kanal (K) = 20 Marla = 180 sq. Karam = 502 m2 = 5444.8 ft.2
Bega (بیگا)
1 Bega (B) = 4 Kanal = 4 x 5444.8 ft.2 = 21779.2 ft.2 (since, 1 Kanal = 5444.8 ft.2) or
1 Bega (B) = 4 Kanal = 4 x 502 m2 = 2008 m2 (since, 1 Kanal = 502 m2) or
1 Bega (B) = 4 Kanal = 4 x 180 sq. Karam = 720 sq. Karam
(since, 1 Kanal = 180 sq. Karam)
1 Bega (B) = 4 Kanal = 720 sq. Karam = 2008 m2 = 21779.2 ft.2
Acre (ایکڑ)
1 Acre = 8 Kanal = 8 x 5444.8 ft.2 = 43560 ft.2 (since, 1 Kanal = 5444.8 ft.2) or
1 Acre = 8 Kanal = 8 x 502 m2 = 4016 m2 (since, 1 Kanal = 502 m2) or
1 Acre = 8 Kanal = 8 x 180 sq. Karam = 1440 sq. Karam
(since, 1 Kanal = 180 sq. Karam) or
1 Acre = 2 Bega
1 Acre = 2 Bega = 8 Kanal = 1440 sq. Karam = 4016 m2 = 43560 ft.2
Hectare (ہیکٹر)
1 Hectare = 2.47 Acre
Lat (لاٹ)
1 Lat = 15 Acre
Square (مربع)
1 Square = 24 Acre
