I would suggest checking out a page at http://www.sheldonbrown.com/selling.html
, which is part of Sheldon Brown's empire of internet knowledge.
If you are trying to sell the bike, I would suggest supplying the following information in your ad:
(i) the length of the seat tube,
(ii) the length of the top tube, which is what I think the size of a bike is, and
(iii) the standover height, which is the distance from the top of the top tube to the ground when the bike is upright.
You can measure these things yourself with a tape measure, and if you want, you can multiply the length (in inches) by 2.54 to get the length in centimeters.
Now that I read Sheldon's page more carefully, I see that he suggests measurement (i) is the size of the bike. Hmmmm....
If you're planning to buy a new bike, don't forget to check out the introductory threads at the top of the various forums (Road Cycling, Commuting, MTB, etc).
Finally, welcome to BikeForums!
