Area in Archicad terminology means the area a Wall occupies in Top View. So the program reports the right value.
What you probably need is Surface A and Surface B or something like that. Those will return the side surface areas of the Wall.

Can't you use the numbers reported by
'Surround. Wall Surface'

For a description see:

However, I noticed some strange behaviour using this.
