Example of geometry token syntax?

 I'm trying to find the area of various polygons in a shapefile using a script cursor. I assume I use "SHAPE@AREA" according to this: Reading geometries—ArcPy Get Started | ArcGIS Desktop 


However, I also want to specify the units (acres). Right now, I get a lot of numbers that don't seem to make much sense. It looks like I need the getArea method to specify the units: Polygon—ArcPy classes | ArcGIS Desktop 


Basically, I'm wondering, how does the getArea method work? Are there examples of the syntax?


Many thanks!
