It's not correct to use "much" to describe the size of an item. "It's this big" is better.

More generally, "much" is used to describe an amount of something that does not have discrete units, such as a volume of a fluid.

"How much water will fit in this vase?"

If you were referring discrete items, rather than a fluid, you would use "many".

"How many pebbles will fit in this vase?"

"Much" is used to describe an amount of money.

"How much did that vase cost?"
