for a circle area = pi r^2
for an ellipse area = pi (minor half length*major half length)
notice that if the major equals the minor, the ellipse is a circle and the formulas are the same.

I assume you mean the minor and major AXIS of the ellipse.
Let a be half the major axis and b be half the minor axis.
The area of the ellipse is
A = pi*a*b
Since you know A and b, you can solve for a.
