Let t denote the thickness. If we don't fold the paper, then it's thickness is

1*t=2^0 * t

If we fold the paper once, then the thickness is

2*t=2^1 * t

so if we fold it k times it should be

(2^k)*t

Now substitute k for the number of times it was folded and t for the thickness. I hope you're aware of how ridiculously large this number is with your given dimensions.

Papper can be only be folded again and again 8 times.
