Each line of "df" refers to a single filesystem (some aren't "real", like /dev). "/dev/sda" refers to the first drive, "/dev/sda1" refers to the first partition therein. So, you have the first partition on the first drive mounted at the root of the filesystem hierarchy: "/". No other partitions appear in df's output (there could be unmounted partitions, but let's assume not ).
So, you have a filesystem on sda1 (the first partition on the first drive). It's total size is 3.6 metric GB. That's expected, if you have a single partition on the "4GB" SSD. STEC SSDs are smaller than claimed.
It has 2.3 metric GB used (typical for a fresh install of Ubuntu), and 1.1 metric GB available for use.

I've got a 16Gb or 32Gb Runcore sitting in a drawer somewhere. I was originally going to put it in and build a Hackintosh, but it seems people that did that have been complaining lately of them being too slow (the Hackintosh's...not the Runcores.)

I've been using xubuntu on my Mini 9, installed on a 4GB STEC. Super fast and reliable. xubuntu really makes low power hardware shine.
For booting from USB, I would recommend xPud. Installed on a 64MB thumb drive with room to spare. Very fast.
