There are all kinds of measuring tools available, but there is an easy and free way.

Turn on View Property Lines under World.  Rez a cube on one edge of your parcel by right clicking the ground.  Choose CREATE and click it again. Stretch it by checking STRETCH in the Edit box, colored boxes will appear, just click and drag them one at a time the length and width of your lot.  Go to the Edit tools box by right clicking and choosing Edit, then go to the Object Tab and see what the measurement is under Size.  You want to look at the X and Y measurements.

You don't even need the measuring prim!

Turn on World/Show More/Property Lines.  You'll see that the borders of your land are outlined, and there are "tick marks" every few meters.  These tick marks are 4m apart.  (The smallest possible parcel of land is 4mx4m, or 16 square meters.)  All you have to do is count the tick marks and multiply by 4 to get the dimension!
