Hmm - it would probably not be too hard to write a plugin for this.

As a quick test, I created a new image, drew a path, and stroked it.

Then I opened the python console and did:

>>> img = gimp.image_list()[0]
>>> path = pdb.gimp_image_get_active_vectors(img)
>>> len = pdb.gimp_vectors_stroke_get_length(path, 1, 1)
>>> print len

That might choke if you have more than one path - I have not tested.

Is this enough to get you going?
