I assume this means two one-kilometer lengths laid side by side.

Example sentence(s):
  • From an analysis of cable engineering and assignment records, determine the equivalent pair kilometers in use for each category by type of facility, e.g., quadded, paired.
  • By the early 1990s, optical fiber that transmitted from 560 to 2,000 megabits per second were physically smaller and cost less per pair-kilometer than coaxial cables with only a fraction of the capacity.
