A while ago I calculated area by creating a transparent layer and
painting with a brush the locations that I wanted to include in
the area. Then using GIMP's histogram (color>Info>histogram), I
got a pixel count for that new layer. (Side note, make sure you
have the right layer selected in the layers dialog)

Then I used a proportion ( Pixels:Inches ) that I got from a scale
in the image to calculated area.

WOW, I thought I knew some clever tricks but this one wins the
prize!  In the case at hand, Select By Color with suitable threshold
adjustments in the Tool Options tab, followed by Colors > Info >
Histogram should do the trick.  I just checked and if there is a
selection, the Histogram tool only looks at that.
