No employer will hire an applicant knowing that they weren’t planning on staying in the company for a long term. So that you should avoid exact time frames; provide more of a general response such as “I plan to work for as long as we both agree I’m excelling at my job.”
Specifics here are not good. Something like this should work: I’d like it to be a long time. Or As long as we both feel I’m doing a good job.

I am committed to staying as long as I can. As long as my employer can appreciate the 110% I am continuously giving into my work, and give me room to grow intellectually and professionally, I wouldn’t have any reason to leave. I find that it’s actually a hassle to change jobs or companies.
Answer sample 2
It’s good to have a long term vision. For now, I would concentrate more on the work that I do, to give my best to the team/company and help to grow. Long term relationships will help to know more about the organization and deliver the best. I do feel, I had much to deliver and company has much to offer.

I am here because I want to be a part of your esteemed organization and want to grow with this organization by contributing my skills for its betterment. So from this initial time I am not thinking about till how long I will associate with your organization rather than I am thinking to grow till the topmost level of this organization.
