Here is my best explanation:

'measure of land' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'note in a confined space' is the subsidiary indication.
'note' becomes 're'.
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'confined space' becomes 'cage' (I've seen this before).
'a'+'cage'='acage'
're' inserted within 'acage' is 'acreage'.
