The scale is simply the absolute distance on your paper devided by the actual corresponding distance in reality. So if you paper is 29,4cm (A4) this corresponds to 6km. So your scale is 1cm --> 204m or 1m --> 20000m or 1:20000 for a landscape-format A4-document (for panel-format this would be 21cm --> 6000m or 1:28500) As an aside you cannot assume that on ...
