Retaining wall can be built with different levels of submersion to the ground. On perfectly flat ground theres 6 different levels of submersion, on steep slopes there can be none.

Retaining walls, as other buildings (with the exception of pipes?), will start to take damage as any of it's 8 foundation tiles is lowered below the bottom or risen above top of its 3D model.

It is advised to place Retaining Walls exactly on the center of a excavating/dumping tile border, as otherwise excavators will be able to dig "through" the wall and trucks dump "over" it, when assigned to a mining tile which is colliding with the wall.

Retaining Wall (Long) is exactly the length of a mining/dumping tile, which is 4x4.
