electrical length of what? If it is well matched and well behaved, like a transmission line, you can figure out the group delay passing thru it by looking at angle[s21].

Td=delta phase/delta frequency

ang[s21] at 1 ghz = -20 degrees
angl[s21] at 1.1 ghz = -25 degrees

Td=(25-20)/((360 deg/cycle)*100MHz) = 138 pS electrical length
