[tlhIngan Hol] number of the subject implied by the {-lu'}

The suffix {-lu'} is defined as "someone or something unspecified".

In english the words "someone" and "something" are singular. Or at least I
think they are..

So, does this mean that whenever we use the {-lu'} it actually means that
the unspecified subject is singular too ?

Example:

'Impey' qach lumutlhlu'pu'

Does this mean "someone (singular) constructed the pyramids" e.g. a pharaoh
?

Or can it mean too "someone(s) (plural) constructed the pyramids" e.g. the
egyptians ?
