It's either 14.11 metres X 4m, so 56.44sqm. Or, they've done the one measurement in feet, so 14ft 11 inches X 4m, which is 4.54m X 4m, so 18.18sqm.

The symbol for feet is ' and it looks more like that.
going to guess its 11 x 14 or 14.11 x 14 from the photo but not sure what the first 14 has a . in between that and the 11, could be 14'11 if thats the case they are mixing up their imperial and metric which they probably wont be doing.
Isn’t it obvious? It’s 14:11 x twitch, silly!

They may mix them up. It will be a 4 metre wide roll of carpet and they have just measured as much as they needed off that, could be 14 metres or feet.
Reason I ask is because I put it to a guy selling underlay on eBay and he said I'd require 60sq mtre underlay at £150 and that seems a bit pricey just for my stairs and hallway. That's as much as the carpet itself nearly

Maybe it's as you suggested and it's 14ft x 11 inch x 4m so it would be 18.18sqm meaning the guy on eBay assumed it was 14.11 metres

How much was it per sqm? You're either paying £10/sqm or £3.19/sqm
the carper comes in metres (width) but when ive had people round to measure, they normally measure in feet and inches. where you getting your underlay from? cloud 9?

Hong Kong obviously. It says so right there on the receipt in the top left.

Here is the actual carpet and it says 14'11 x 13'1 HONG KONG

So it is 18sqm not 56sqm meaning I would need one roll of underlay at £38 not 4 rolls for £156

Do I need 18sqm rmjowen?
I'd always get 10% extra for wastage. So if your room is 18sqm, I'd get 20sqm.
