What do building costs per square metre cover?

I know this is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string" but in general terms what is and isn't included in the quotes of building cost per sqm. I see such numbers quoted on various web sites and newspaper articles.

Now I assume that architect/designer fees aren't included, but what about things like site prep, appliances/fittings, tiles, carpet, builder's margin etc.

The reason I ask it that we're trying to figure out if we could afford (or at least be in the ball park) a knock-down rebuild. We have yet to buy the property to do this and some idea of the costs might help us figure out if it is pure fantasy or something possible.
