Some of the answers here are strange and incorrect. There are 640 acres per square mile.
In US measurements:
A Mile is 5280 feet.
An Acre is 43,560 square feet (or 4,840 square yards)
One square mile is a SECTION. There are 640 acres in a Section.
In Metric measurements:
An Acre is 4,047 square meters.
