Without something next to a cake to give it scale, it's very hard to say "it's x and y" by looking at it alone.

 

I personally would have said 6" and 8". 

 

As for how many layers should each tier be....  that's surely personal preference?  I do 3 layers in my cakes, with 2 of filling.  But I know many people do 4 layers with 3 filling.  Others have been known just to bake a deep cake and cut it in half, thus giving 1 layer of filling.

 

There are lots of charts and tables online to tell you how much fondant you should use (I just eyeball it!)  I don't really use ganache so can't help you there.
