It's singular.

*pa'vo' pagh leghlu'*/The room has no view./ (CK)
If *pagh* were plural, the verb would be *luleghlu'.*

*SaqSubDaq pagh Qoylu'*/In the Saq'sub all is quiet/ (paq'batlh)
Not *luQoylu'.*

*SanDaj SaH pagh*/[And] no one cared about its fate./ (paq'batlh)
*SanDaj* is definitely singular here (the earth's [ground's] fate), and 
it isn't *luSaH.*

*qeylIS lIjlaHbogh pagh*/Kahless the unforgettable/ (paq'batlh)
Not *lulIjlaHbogh.*
