It's not even grammatical: lit. "one one equal to one" - there's no verb!

It's multiplication, not addition.

And like you might say "three fives are fifteen", here it is "one one is one" -- there is nothing to indicate the multiplication explicitly. (Just as we don't say "two times book" but just "two books".)
