I don't weather or not you've done anything like this before.
The first thing I would do is to measure the length of the line marked at 20 micrometers, if you know this in centimetres you can work out your conversion factor i.e if 5cm is equal to 20um then 1cm is equal to 4um.
The next thing I would do is to measure the structure in centimetres and then you can work it out in micrometers i.e using my above example if the structure is 2cm, then that equates to 8um.
Does that make sense?

I hope that helps.
