Does square root of cell size = cell area?

Considering this statement, "suppose we use an output cell size of 0.5 kilometers, and we see that one cell receives a value of 16 crimes per square kilometer.  Since the area of the cell is 0.25 square kilometers (0.5 km * 0.5 km = 0.25 km2), we can multiply the density by the area to get an expected count of 4 crimes (16 crimes/km2 * 0.25 km2 = 4 crimes)...."


....does the square root of Cell Size (Kernel Density tool) equal the area of each cell (I'm using square miles for Area Units)?
