That’s not what you measure for spindle length. For a square taper, you measure from one end of the spindle to the other. I think you are also measuring the distance of the central section incorrectly. From the outer edge of each ridge, most every spindle I can find measures 52mm. There is one that goes in a 70mm bottom bracket shell that measures 55mm. Check Sheldon Brown’s page on bottom brackets.
