That depends upon the map you're seeing.

As Ms Sue said, it depends on the scale on your map
Usually at the bottom of your map you will see something like this
1 : 100 000
What that means is that for each unit on the map you would have 100 000 of the same units in real life
e.g for the above scale
1 cm on the map would be
100 000 cm in reality
= 1000 m
= 1 km
so for a scale of 1 : 100000
1 cm > 1 km
