This would be easier if you used flags for these tools that set them
all to use the same units. df -B 4k for instance.

If I convert 937689088 by assuming it means 4k blocks, I get 3.48t.
The reserved block count is therefore .174t. Add that to the .041t of
disk you've used and that gives you .215t being used. You can arrive
at similar numbers by subtracting "1K-blocks" from "Used" plus
"Available": (3696706360-3508924424)/1024/1024/1024 -> .174t.
Reserved space is the space available to the root user (or whatever
user you've set the fs to allow into reserved space). For ext2 and
ext3 filesystems you could adjust that with the tune2fs command
(there's a man page). It's one of the few things you can run on a
mounted fs. It can be set as a percentage or as a number. By default
it's 5% (which is exactly what this is).
See what the tunefs command is for ext4 (it might even be tune2fs).
It can't, as they say, tune a fish, but it could free up a 150g or so.
10g should be fine for reserved space.
