welcome :-)

Please provide more information [1]:
- what is the purpose of "real terrain"
- what you want to simulate in general
- why do you want to use level set
- ...

For "the real terrain described by the gridded DEM" I would simply use
facets as the first approach [2,3,4]

disclaimer: I have zero knowledge of level set in Yade, so my point of
view is biased.
