I work in a small office and sit in a small server room working on a computer making telephone calls. After 2 hours I feel like I'm soffocating. What is the effect of the computer equipment and servers on the air quality of a room approximately 10 feet by 6 feet?

All the servers do is warm the air. They shouldn't add any contaminants. The warm air can certainly make the room feel like it is losing oxygen, but assuming there is some reasonable circulation, if not A/C, that likely isn't an issue, either.
All that said, you need to talk to your manager and help them find a better place for you to work. It is disrespectful to you.
Noone can answer that - depends a lot on air conditioning anyway.
THAT SAID: Hwo loud is it? I can not imagine sitting in a server room.
Also - 6 feet x 4 feet? That is waht? 1.2 x 1.8 meters? You livei n a slave camp?
This is ahrdly enough to put a DESK there, with some computers on top... let me formulate it like that:
I would not care about air quality, the room is ILLEGAL AS OFFICE TO START WITH. At least where I live.
