Check the "levy tab" in the military menu. The number of cohorts for each province will be displayed.

Manpower and Levies are separate things.

The number shown in the Levies tab of the Military screen shows the number of cohorts that each Governorship provides when its levy is raised (you can raise it somewhere other than the capital if you use the levies map view (the button left of the "i" at the top of that tab - just be careful as clicking on any province you own in that view will raise that whole Governorship's levy in that province). Each cohort is 500 men, so in the screenshot you posted, for example, you would raise 3k Heavy Infantry, 2k Light Horse, 7k Light Infantry and 1k Supply Trains from Italia.

Manpower is used to replenish levies (or legions) which have lost troops, and to create new legion cohorts (and a few other things besides, once you unlock things like forts through the Castrum tradition, for example). Having levies raised will also reduce the pool of available manpower.

Hope that helps!

You can't really calculate this from the manpower as that depends on how many pops of the primary culture they have that are not slaves, plus how many cultures they have integrated that will add up to their total levy size. Then you have the standing army of which they may have one plus all the mercenaries, of course. They do have a sizable war chest, so it's likely they will buy a few stacks of mercenaries.

What that manpower tells you is basically how long they will manage to replenish their armies once they start taking losses, no matter what size their army is, and with 20k they will surely manage to replenish for a while before they run of of manpower, one can say.
