It's very clear from the error message what has happened. The message says
ERROR: Integrate::ilim: Invalid integration variable or limit(s) in {0.5,a^2+b^2,a^2+(-b+l)^2}.
So, at some point before trying to do the integral you have assigned the value 0.5 to x. You can clear this by typing
x=.
before calling Integrate[].
In general, avoid assigning values to variables, especially simple ones such as x that you are very likely to want to use again later. Better practice is to use rules to insert values into expressions, as in
Expr/. X->0.5
