There is an equation in physics to find the distance Knowing the acceleration, time and the initial velocity. Now, if we see the equation as a formula to find a hypotenuse, then it can also be seen as an equation that describes a right triangle. In the attached image, you can see that the result of the equation is in the marked area of the right triangle. The question is: how can a onedimensional unit be represented in a twodimensional geometric figure?

I don't see a problem, I do it all the time when I plot graphs. Note that you don't have a one dimensional unit on its own, it is being drawn with friends, these make up the other dimensions. (since you have 4 units, you could represent this in 4 dimensions)
