Yes total number of elements is the mesh size, although i guess Gambit might combine 2D and 3D elements for the total.
Import the mesh to your solver and find out the total number of 3D elements.

Regards
Luke

thanks for your help.
when I run the file with fluent,It writes:[133606 tetrahedral cells, zone 2.]
you mean it's the whole number of mesh of the geometry?
