Oops, wrong answer. I tried to convert mm^2 to in^2 and then look in a AWG wire table.

Convert mm^2 to mills^2; square millimeters to square mills

Then look into this table under Circular mills. http://www.interfacebus.com/Copper_Wire_AWG_SIze.html

A mil is 0.001. A circular mill is 0.000001

So it's 186 sq mills

The best match is #4
