    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
