Do a little research, you need to decide most of those based on the tools you are using to make it.
Base size shoudl be about the same as the fin size and spacing if thats the same(1mm base with 1mm fins and 1mm channels) and the fin height should be between 3 and 4 times the width. The radius or diameter(that you have drawn is diameter) is whatever size you want to fit everything in(watch the size of hosebarbs and hoses).

With all due respect iakovl,
Do some reading, there are plenty information on the forum for you to make an educated guess about sizes, design, etc.
One thing is to come up with something more or less ready and ask for an opinion in how to improve it. Another totally different is to try get a complete project...
Try to look at finished blocks that looks like what you want, and than base your design on them.
And who knows, maybe someone has something ready and would like to share it with you.

I'd make it no smaller than a 2" diameter. You'd probably want to make it a little bigger though (2.25-2.5" is probably optimal).

If you have access to the manual it should tell you how to give the machine info. Every machine tends to be different.
