We don't have a word for continent although I once found *{Hatlh'a'} used on the KLI's web site.  naHQun also suggested *{bIQpuH'a'} - as well as *{bIQpuH} "island".  

(KGT 16):  The Klingon Homeworld {Qo'noS}, usually rendered Kronos in Federation Standard, is a planet with basically one very large mass of land surrounded by ocean; perhaps continent is a comparable concept.

>From qepHom 2016, the other Terran continents are:

'amerI'qa' 'ev chan 'ev  	North America 
'amerI'qa' tIng chan tIng  	South America 

'antartIq  			Antarctica 

'aSralya'  			Australia
'ewrop  				Europe 

... and let's not forget the Indian sub-continent:

barat  				India (TNK)
