Download cytoband file from UCSC:

And summarise using R:

library(data.table)

x <- fread("http://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/goldenpath/hg19/database/cytoBand.txt.gz", 
           col.names = c("chrom","chromStart","chromEnd","name","gieStain"))

x[ , .(length = sum(chromEnd - chromStart)), 
   by = .(chrom, arm = substring(name, 1, 1)) ]

Table 4 contains the physical and genetic lengths of human chromosomes. I assumes that is what the question is about.
