The panels have a third dimension, thickness. If they stack perfectly, the volume (especially a shipping volume) is the area in square meters multiplied by the thickness of one panel, also expressed in meters (A 10 mm thick panel would be 0.01 m).
Any warpage, air spaces, etc will increase shipping volume somewhat over this theoretical volume, but it is the place to start.
