For non-binary data, you could use one of the following:

In[1]:= lst = {{0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1,
0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0}, {1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1,
0, 0}, {1, 3, 3, 4, 2, 2, 5, 3, 2, 1}, {7, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 0, 3,
1, 3}};

Length /@ (lst /. 0 -> Sequence[])

Length /@ DeleteCases[lst, 0, {2}]

Plus @@@ Unitize /@ lst

Out[2]= {0, 3, 3, 4, 10, 9}

Out[3]= {0, 3, 3, 4, 10, 9}

Out[4]= {0, 3, 3, 4, 10, 9}
