Reach typically refers to the number of people who could potentially see an ad.

If an advertiser sets very broad targeting – e.g. “females who live in the USA” – then their reach will be quite large.

If they tighten their targeting – e.g. “females between the ages of 20-25 who live in Dublin, Ireland, and are interested in running shoes” – their reach will be rather small.
