Locally we generally use this question in a market place where you ask for the size of something you wish to buy

Shopkeeper : madam yeh dekhiye chadar (bedsheet)

You : yeh kitna bada h? Khol kar dikhao (unwrap and show)

Unless you are a blind person, and my apologies to those that may be in this unfortunate situation, as a sighted person, I would never ask this question without some context, i.e. is it big enough to fit in the back of my SUV? It's sort of an awkward question to a native English speaker. Is there a more appropriate English language expression that directly relates to this phrase? Thank you...

Without context the question "How big is this?" is a bit nebulous. During this pandemic, where we all have to queue to get into a store, we might very well ask: "How long is this line or queue?" if it were wrapped around a building.
