the information is in the WindowSize option of the corresponding
notebook object. This will give you the size of the notebook that
evaluates it:

WindowSize /. Options[EvaluationNotebook[]]

when working with manipulates and palettes you also might want to use
ButtonNotebook[] , SelectedNotebook[] and Notebooks[] to get a handle at
the notebook you are after.

Just in case: You can also get the size of the screen with:

ScreenRectangle /. Options[$FrontEnd]

which then lets you choose a reasonable size for a new notebook/window.
