Yes, those measurements can form a triangle. If you add any two sides, they will always be greater than the third, so it can be a triangle.

Those measurements are actually called a "Pythagorean Triple", because those measurements (and their multiples) will always be a right triangle. Any Pythagorean Triple will measure to a right triangle.
