Did a bit of math and realized:

The Sphero's ( www.gosphero.com ) diameter: 74 mm
Mars surface gravity: ~3.7 m/s^2

Marble Blast marble diameter: ~0.4 TU
Marble Blast gravity: 20 TU/s^2

The ratio is the same. I conclude that the marble is a Sphero, 1 TU = 18.5 cm, and MBG is set on a terraformed Mars.

If by terraformed Mars you mean Marblaxia, right?

I believe you are a bit mistaken. As I recall, Marblaxia is the archenemy of the marble, not the planet on which MB takes place. Unless there's been a giant retcon in the mythos.

Marblaxia is the arch-enemy indeed. You're thinking of Marblius, Sporlo.

Other possibilities:

Bowling ball on Earth (equivalent Torque gravity: 18.25)
Normal marble on Triton (equivalent Torque gravity: 20.77)

You would have to factor in the lakes of liquid methane on Titan. The properties of that would be close to outrageous in the game.

I think Marble Blast takes place in heaven. As evidenced by this video:
