Are you

An integral.

I am a long snake, terrible to everyone,

The integral sign (∫) looks like an elongated s, or a snake. Integrals can also be quite difficult to calculate, making some people fear them.

I unite everything that has fallen apart.

A derivate measures the sensitivity to change in a point in a function. An integral takes a derivate and unites all the points into the original function again.

I am hard to conquer for human, even the smartest ones,

Calculating integrals is taught as higher education. Even then, learning to use it correctly is often a lot of work.

And it helps to find the size.

Integrals are often used to calculate areas and volumes.

Is the answer

a measuring tape?!

It's almost terrible to everyone since

it either tells you that you are shorter / fatter / slimmer than an average person.

It's hard to conquer

[get yourself slim / fat / tall] to the extent that everybody likes it.

And it helps to find the size.
