It very much depends on the family/genus/species and egg size - I'd hate to give 'an average' because it would be a bit meaningless. Some squid have large eggs and accordingly large larvae, some have small eggs and similarly small larvae. Some octopus eggs can reach ~ 50 mm in greatest length, others but a few mm; so little is known about squid but there is considerable variation in their egg size.
