Not sure how I can measure that, I just have a plain ruler and a empty slot.
Heck, even the 42mm is an educated guess, the slot is about 40 mm long and since the standards are 30mm, 42mm and 80mm, it has to be a 42mm slot.
But right now it's a moot point as I don't even see any m.2 drives for sale.

Here's one of the Intel models for you from NewEgg but length is not specified -- probably too long.
Intel does seem to offer some of its models in the correct length but I suspect you have already searched the web to find one:
Leave it to Lenovo to screw us again with idiotic design compromises -- if it was an 80mm slot, we would be able to have many more options. As of now, it seems that we will be capacity limited to 120 or perhaps 180 GB.

All the 530 series m.2 drives are 80mm long

You are correct.
We are stuck moving up to the Intel 1500 series Pro models -- much harder to locate and probably more costly with little incremental benefits.
Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?

99.9% sure it's a 42mm slot, I'd post a picture but I don't think I can do it.
The standards are 30, 42 or 80. I think I can tell the difference.
Sir, are you questioning my skill with a ruler? Prepare to defend yourself!

No, the Wifi is M.2 as well
from the PSREF Sheet.
11ac, M.2 Card, Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260, 2x2, Wi-Fi + BT combo adapter.
So the other free M.2 slot can be used by either WWAN or a M.2 SSD.
