It is revealed that the coordinates for the island are approximately: 140 degrees latitude and 10 degrees longitude. See more
The radio announcer gives the target coordinates for the Powderkeg missile as 140 degrees latitude, 10 degrees longitude, which the Skipper (an old salt in these waters) and Professor confirm.

Transposing the coordinates, though (to 10 degrees N latitude, 140 degrees W longitude) would place the missile several hundred miles southeast of Hawaii - the approximate location of their island.
