Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

For example, I can run the Wizard query in Overpass Turbo: "highway=motorway AND oneway=yes in Chugoku" which gives me all the dual-carriage ways in the Chugoku region of Japan. Is there a way that I can calculate the total length of all these paths?

I tried exporting to a KML and running some script but then I realized that the KML file was a folder that contained thousands of individual paths.

I imagine there has to be a better way of doing this.

try to type "length" in the search box of this FAQ site ... there are already some topics how to determine lengts of determined OSM way elements.

Export to a format QGIS can handle. Then use a function of that program to calculate. Here's a tutorial
