Chatak is used both for measuring land as well as mass.

Please see these two links:

http://www.sizes.com/units/katha.htm for a definition of cottah; In India, a unit of land area, = 1/20th biggah, in Bengal = 720 square feet

Banglapedia for a definition of chatak:


(sizes.com defines chatak as a unit of mass)
