Land is sold in blocks that are 4 M on a side. So any parcel's edges will always be multiples of 4 M.

In the veiw menu, check the option to show parcel boundries. You can then see the edges of the parcels.

In the build tools, go to the tab for editing land, and select the land inside the parcel. As you drag from one corner, you'll see the selected rectangle snap in 4 M increments. Count the number of times it does that, multiply by 4, and you have the length of that parcel edge.

With the whole parcel selected, the "About Land" controls in parcel properties will tell you the total area and supported prim count for the selected land.
