What island is he talking about?
Quam insulam loquitur?

I know what island he is talking about.
Scio quam insulam loquatur.

So loqui can be also to talk about...interesting...is there any other way to say it? With "dé" for example?

According to Lewis and Short at: http://perseus.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0059%3Aentry%3D%2326989. See especially section I.B.

Presumably you could also say scio de qua insula dicat if you wanted. I don't know which is the more usual way to do it.
