Taken from: http://sridharu.blogspot.com/2009/02/sharepoint-document-library-size.html

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://servername"))
   DataTable tbl;
   tbl = site.StorageManagementInformation(
   SPSite.StorageManagementSortedOn.Size, 100);
   foreach (DataRow row in tbl.Rows)
      foreach (DataColumn column in tbl.Columns)
      MessageBox.Show("Doc Lib Name :" + row["Title"].ToString() + "  Size (bytes): " + row["Size"].ToString());

Try space monitor (http://www.thesug.org/Blogs/lsuslinky/Lists/Posts/ViewPost.aspx?ID=33&RootFolder=%2FBlogs%2Flsuslinky%2FLists%2FPosts) a great free tool to analyse storage used by your entire site.
