Why do we need "lang" here?

I think "for 10 days" translates "10 Tage lang"(10 day long), as "10 liters of milk" does "10 Liter Milch" and "a cup of tea" does "eine Tasse Tea". German is direct and simple. But dont trust me, Im not English or German.

"ich will" = "I want (to)"
"ich möchte" = "I would like (to)" (more polite)
