I have the 2hp Harbor Freight unit. It’s plenty loud. I don’t have a way to measure it, but it is at least as loud as my shop vac. Not as loud as my planer.

In a space that small, you might be best off getting or making an air cleaner. If your work area is/can be enclosed, the air cleaner will recycle air within the room, cleaning the dust out of the air by using furnace filters. You’d still need to vacuum up the heavy portion of the dust that remains on the floor/benchtop.
