I have a problem asking me how many grams of aluminum are needed to make a line of dislocations from some point A to B is the dislocation density is 10^10cm/cm^3 does this mean for each cubic centimeter of aluminum that there are 10^10cm worth of dislocation length? This is what I suspect but I don't want to foul it up on assumptions.

I believe that's correct. I think however, it is more common to use the units of number per area (lines per cm^2).
