The sketchup workspace is basically a scaleless infinite 3d environment.
If what looks like 1cm on your screen measures as 45 metres you need to zoom in significantly.
Delete the 45m line, then with the line tool click and release to start an edge, move in the direction you would like to draw, let go of the mouse and type 1cm and hit return.
This will create a 1cm edge, if you have nothing else in the model you can use shift + z to Zoom Extents and it should zoom in on the 1cm edge.

And ofcource you can use the scrollwheel of your mouse to zoom in and out…
