  Dimensionless quantity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A dimensionless quantity (or more precisely, a quantity of dimension 1) is a physical quantity consisting of only a numerical number without any physical units.
Dimensionless quantities are widely used in the fields of physics and engineering but also in everyday life.

A radian is the ratio of an arc length to a radius, and the ratio of two lengths is dimensionless.
An angle of one radian (1 rad) causes the ratio of the length of the arc of the circle's circumference to the radius of the circle to be one.
Introduction to the Aerodynamics of Flight http://history.nasa.gov/SP-367/appendb.htm The measure of the central angle of a circle is defined as the ratio of the subtended arc of the circle divided by the radius, that is, a ratio of two lengths.

 Dimensional analysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is essentially due to the requirement for the Taylor expansion of these functions to be dimensionally homogeneous, which means that the square of the argument must be of the same dimension as the argument itself.
For scalar arguments, this means the argument must be dimensionless, but certain dimensioned tensors are dimensionally self-square (Hart, 1995) and may be used as arguments to these functions.
Then when adding two quantities of like dimension, but expressed in different units, the appropriate conversion factor, which is essentially the dimensionless 1, is used to convert the quantities to identical units so that their numerical values can be added or subtracted.

 BIPM - dimensionless quantities
The coherent SI unit of all such dimensionless quantities, or quantities of dimension one, is the number one, since the unit must be the ratio of two identical SI units.
Another class of dimensionless quantities are numbers that represent a count, such as a number of molecules, degeneracy (number of energy levels), and partition function in statistical thermodynamics (number of thermally accessible states).
All of these counting quantities are also described as being dimensionless, or of dimension one, and are taken to have the SI unit one, although the unit of counting quantities cannot be described as a derived unit expressed in terms of the base units of the SI.

Normally, yes it would be dimensionless, because area is determined from length through a *mathematical* procedure.
If you say it is *physically* dimensionless, you are implying that you do not wish to doubt Newtonian mechanics, which may be a practical thing to do.
Here too, saying it is *physically* dimensionless, you are implying that you do not wish to doubt Maxwell mechanics, which may be a practical thing to do if you are for example an engineer.

A dimensionless metric is one whose scale is independent of the object being measured to such an extent that two or more objects can be compared meaningfully on the same metric.
Another dimensionless metric is the average of a set of responses by a user to a set of standardised questions about the usability of a system.
Dimensionless metrics are important because they enable us to make increasingly general statements about the usability of computer systems.

Chemical engineers become accustomed to dealing with dimensionless groups such as the Reynold's number, the Prandtl number, the Grasshof number, etc. These dimensionless groups arise when the differential equations describing the process are recast in terms of dimensionless variables.
This means that the solution of Newton's equation of motion yields identical dimensionless velocities and trajectories for all LJ fluids; i.e., the trajectory of the system through dimensionless phase space is identical for all conformal fluids at the same dimensionless state point.
Thus, the results of the simulation are not just dependent upon the dimensionless state of the system, but also upon the nature of the second component; i.e., upon the ratio of the model energy and size parameters.
