*There are one million (1,000,000, 1 x 106) square meters
in a square kilometer.*

*There are 1000 meters in 1 kilometer. Thus to get the
number of square meters in 1 square kilometer, you must square the
number of meters in a kilometer. 1,000 meters X 1,000 meters =
1,000,000 square meters.*

Is it one million, e.g. 1000 x 1000?

### How many sqmeters are in one kilometer?

If you mean 'How many square meters are in one square kilometer'
than the answer would be 1,000,000 because there are 1,000 meters
in one kilometer and if you square 1,000 you get 1,000,000 (one
million).
However if you do mean 'How many square meters are in one
kilometer' than the answer would be zero as they are different
units of measurements.
Hope that helps!
