I guess the answer is distance because the sentence explains in this manner if we suspect any person we maintain some distance, must keep an arm distance.

It should be a distance which makes sense.

The Answer is Length.

'At Arm's Length' means to keep someone or something at arm's length is to maintain an emotional distance as to avoid familiarity or intimacy or else to dissociate yourself from someone or something and to avoid coming into close contact.
