Acres, miles, kilometers...halp!

Okay, so, I've got an island. It's approximately 9000 acres. That's just at 14 square miles, or a little over 36 square kilometers.

My question is, if you have a track that runs the circumference of the island, how long is it, start to finish?

I just have no earthly clue how to do the math (i'm no good at math) and google searches of 'how far around a 9000 acre island' bring no joy.

Probably the answer is super simple but - like i said - i am just not a math person.

ETA: I find the 'top 25 most popular entries!' comment by 'livejournal' to be extremely odd. (See comments.)
