I'm not sure from your post what you're trying to check - but whatever - a way to tell if a rectangle is really a rectangle is to measure the distance from one corner to the opposite corner. That measurement should be the same as the measurement from the other two opposing corners. (If you were using two tape measures, they would form an "X" on the area you're measuring.)

But again, I'm not clear on whether you want to check that the wall ITSELF is square - or whether it's SQUARELY in place (in relation to another wall, floor, ceiling...)
