Shouldn't it be "यह दीवार उंची है"?

This was asked somewhere else, and I think it was concluded that, in a case where it's clear the wall is not long, लंबी would be undestood to mean tall (as it is when referring to a person). But in a case where the wall is both long and tall, ऊंची would be a more specific word.
