"Is" when you're treating the length as a singular quantity. "Are" on the extremely rare occasions when you're talking about the inches as separate entities.

If you would say it with a rising intonation at the end, you can represent that with a question mark. However, I don't think making it a statement with a period is too forceful either. You may want to do some research on uptalk and how it is perceived by the people around you, as some people look upon it negatively.
