I just finished calculating the 9x9 case and confirm the value 1330560.

My method was to take the 6 matrices A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6 found by Knuth
are representatives of the 6 distinct orbits of 9 x 9 matrices A such that
A^2 = J under the action of the 9! permutation matrices acting by
I found for each Ai the size n_i of the stabilizer of Ai. The stabilizer
are [n_1,n_2,n_3,n_4,n_5,n_6] = [6,2,1,1,2,2] this give the
cardinality of the union of all orbits:
                sum(9!/n_i, i=1..6) = 1330560.
