Question Pakistan land measure

I have just found references to 1-kanal, 2-kanal, 6-kanal and 32-kanal areas (of bus terminals and properties for sale) in Lahore, Pakistan. I believe 1 kanal may be 500 square yards.
Can anyone confirm this?
Can the 'kanal' be added to the list of measures on the database, please?

I did some research and found the kanal is a unit of area equal to 20 marlas. The kanal was standardized under British rule to be equal to exactly 605 square yards. This is 1/8th of an acre.

I will certainly add this to my to-do list and add it to the site soon.
