It can be any number greater than 1138m that you like. By making the area longer and thinner its perimeter can be increased without limit.

### What is the perimeter of 9 acres in meters?

You can't tell the perimeter by knowing the area.
The smallest possible perimeter for the area is a circle. With
9 acres inside it, the circle's
diameter is 215.35 meters, and the perimeter (circumference) is
676.53 meters. (rounded)
The smallest possible perimeter with straight sides is a square.
With 9 acres inside it,
each side of the square is 190.84 meters, and the perimeter is
763.38 meters.
But it could be anything more than that.
Example:
A skinny rectangular garden, 121-ft (36.88 meters) wide and
3,240-ft (987.55 meters) long.
Area = (121) x (3,240) = 392,040 square feet = 9
acres .
Perimeter = 6,722-ft = 2,048.87 meters

### How many miles are around the perimeter of 20 acres?

An area of 20 acres can have millions of different shapes. It
can be round, oval, square, rectangular, triangular, hexagonal, or
irregular. Knowing the area doesn't tell you the shape or the
proportions. As long as the total included area is 43,560 square
feet, it's an acre.
The smallest possible perimeter for 20 acres would be a circle
with a diameter of 1053.2 feet. The circumference is 3308.75 ft =
0.63 mile.
The smallest possible plot with straight sides would be a
square, with sides of 933.4 feet, and perimeter of 3,733.5 ft =
0.707 mile.
But you can make 20 acres have as large a perimeter as you want,
with no upper limit. For example:
A strip of land 10 feet wide and 87,120 ft (16.5 miles) long.
Area = 20 acres. Perimeter = 33 miles and 20 ft.
