Accusative of Space

Just as there is the Ablative of Time Duration, I found there is also an Ablative of Space. This makes sense because space and time are related.
Here Caesar has set up fortifications to stop the impending Gallic invasion:
I'm including only the pertinent part of the sentence:

...milia passuum undeviginti murum fossamque perduxit.

...he [Caesar] led through/built for nineteen thousand miles wall and trench.

Gratias tibi.

Wrong on almost very count. This is the Accusative of Space and it is 19 miles, not 19,000.
