khanat [Thai. ขนัด ]

Sources differ on whether or not khanat is a unit of land area.



For gardens or plantations the word khănẵt is used instead of the word rằi. The khănẵt is a piece of ground forming a single garden or plantation of any extent. Talking of the extent of a garden or plantation it is said that it has so many sen and so many va [wah] in length and in breadth.

[Thus introduction, page 46, but on page 316:]

khănẵt ... Measure of gardens (twenty square fathoms [i.e., square wah])
