I'm not sure I understand the question.  Isn't this a question about a
specific piece of software?  The size of a particular equation is
going to depend on the renderer that is displaying it, the base font
size, whether it is inline or display, and so on.  

Various MathML rendering engine I know of make size information
available in different ways.  So you will have to fill in some details
about what software you are using.
