ValueTrack allows you to add various attributes *of each click* to the 
tracking URL template and final URLs of your account, so by definition the 
ValueTrack parameter values are for a single impression. If you want to get 
metrics such as impressions for a given date range (across all your 
clicks), then you'll want to use reports. Check out the Reporting guide 
<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/guides/reporting> and the 
list of reports 
<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/appendix/reports> for more
