If 일주 means "one week", what does the other 일 stands for? Day? If so, the literal translation would be "one week days is seven days" or something like that? ~send help~

It does, actually. See here.

It is not very common beyond one and two though.

I wouldn't recommend you to memorize this word. I have honestly never heard the word these days.

하루, 이틀, 사흘, 나흘. people say them a lot. Try the rest of them, if you have enough time or want to learn words further.

"Seven days" goes as one word, thus it's not a surprise that a word for "seven" alone doesn't appear
