I don't think so, the Private Island is way bigger than a normal Large Land area.

I can suggest that you don't get a private island, you're better off just getting two large lands. I do think a large land might be big enough to cover a smaller mapped private island (or most of it), but not a massive one.

It actually depends on the size of the Island.

Yeah it's kind of hard to explain and to visualize but let's say this is the land's size

By covering the entire land I only mean the part on where you can build, the border(rocks) not included.

Uhm.. As I said above, it depends on the size of the Island, if the size is fit for a large land, yes you can have one.

Are there standard measures for a large land then, because I don't think every large land is the same size.

There aren't. They roughly estimate the size as they compare them to current large lands. However, I'd apply common sense and, if someone is actually willing to donate for an Island and a large land, both very expensive, I'd let him edit the whole area..
Nonetheless, if it's a new island, meaning they will have to create a new one instead of copy/pasting one of the current islands, you may also have a talk with the mappers in charge of creating your land and let them know how exactly you want it. Then place your land on a side of the Island where you think you'll make the most edits.

As private islands are in remote locations (ie. far away from other lands), we can cover the entire island with a large land. The size restriction is there to prevent streaming issues with nearby lands and as islands are in the middle of the ocean, we can cover it entirely without any issues.
