pos = [2 4 2 2];
rectangle('Position',pos,'Curvature',[1 1])

The diameter of your circles is 2. If you have N squares, then the sum of the sides is N*4*width. Set that equal to the diameter, and, using simple algebra you get width = diameter/(N*4) = 0.5 * N if the diameter is 2.
Where do you want the squares?
1. In a regular grid?
2. Randomly placed?
3. Placed in locations that you specify?

In regular grid.

The size of one square is min(diff(1:10)) which is 1. That is, to use a square that is D on a side, use D as the increment, like
x_coordinates = first_x + (0:10)*D;
