Meter is a mesure of length (distance).
Square meter is a measure of area.
Cubic meter is a measure of volume (capacity).

How to convert length to area? There is no answer to this question, because these are different measurements. It's not a question of conversion.

You can calculate area of an object if you know its form and dimentions.

If your object is a square, its area equals to side lengths squared. I.e. if side length is 2 meters, the area is 2*2=4 square meteres.

If you have a cube, its volume equals to its side length cubed. I.e. if side length is 2 meters, the volume of the cube is 2*2*2=8 cubic meters.

For more complex objects the formulas would be different.
