• This island's surface area is about 70 square kilometers.

「島の」は直訳すると"The island's"となります。

• The "total land space" that this land takes up is 70 square kilometers.

• If all of the land space of this island were added together it would equal to 70 kilometres long by 1 kilometre wide.

Square kilometres refers to the amount of space that an object or land takes up. So when you refer to something that is 70 square kilometres it means that when you multiply one length or the island by another it will equate to 70 kilometres.

An example is:

A rectangle with a length 5km and 4 km has an AREA of 20 square kilometres. This is because we multiply 5 and 4 together.
square kilometres'（平方キロメートル）は、物や土地の面積を表します。
'70 square kilometres'（70平方キロメートル）は、長さと幅を掛けて、'70 kilometres'になるものをいいます。

A rectangle with a length 5km and 4 km has an AREA of 20 square kilometres. This is because we multiply 5 and 4 together.

"The island was like 70 square km."（島の面積は70㎢ほどです。）

The total area of something is the amount of space measured in square metres or larger or smaller measurements depending on the context.
