In the bottom left hand corner of a Google map you usually see a scale with Metres and Feet displayed.

Here is a list of what I think are the google zoom level to scale legend conversions.

Google Zoom to Metres/Feet, Kilometres/Miles

A table of what I believe the Google Zoom Levels equate to when viewing the Scale legend in the bottom left hand corner of a Google Map.
