"Length" is a physical quantity which we attribute to bodies,in order describe quantitatively the property of matter of having "legth"...We can define this quantity in any number of dimensions,different from zero.Incidentally,in one dimension,the bodies will have length which is assessed uniquely...Whether length is real or not,it' more of a garbage speculation-phylosophy matter...
