"Am I wrong by any chance?" is an accepted translation.

Can "etwa" mean "somewhat"?

"somewhat" sounds rather like "etwas" too me. "etwa" does not express a degree (of being wrong) but rather surprise.

Really? You wouldn't say "die Fahrt dauert etwa 2 Stunde"?

"... 2 Stunden". Well, "etwa" means here "about", "approximately" that is right. Would you say "somewhat two hours"?
