Fortunatly (or is that unfortunatly), there is no standard. 
Best method is to put minis side by side and make an estimate.
Remember to take Volume into consideration.

Some people have posted size guidelines in the past, but these
usually don't take into account the girth of the mini.

Several months ago, somone indicated that he used a grams
scale. He weighed the mini, weighed the stand, subtracted the
stand from the weight of the mini, then did a numeric comparison
from several of the GZG minis. With this as a baseline, he 
weighed the non-GZG minis and placed them in the appropriate
catogory. However this seemed like too much work for me.
