If you are asking what $|x|$ means, it means the absolute value of x, which is the distance from 0. $|x|=\sqrt{x^2}$

and if you are asking what $||x||$ means, I have only seen that as the magnitude of a vector

The absolute value is just a particular norm, dimension 1. The question has been clearly asked, with ||X||.
