I found this definition:
http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/dictK.html
Quote:
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.
If this is the definition, then 8. It is 5445 ft²

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 54-60". There the kanal is still 180 sq. karam, but smaller because the karam is smaller. Four different non-standard 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.
