You should knit for about 10cm, maybe 50 rows. The stitch gauge is the most critical to get but you'll still need to knit a tension square in order to measure an accurate stitch gauge. Knitting just a few rows won't work.
Some patterns don't give a row gauge but they'll tell you in the pattern to knit for so many cms rather than so many rows in most cases.
