I think that's fine.  Ofcourse, more is always better however, I'm running ex2010 on 2008 enterprise with 60 users. and it's only using about 3.5gb of ram.  

Usage is really subjective based on your user base and what they are doing and how much mail is being processed that we don't know.  

Since ram is such an simple thing to upgrade, I would just put it in production and monitor ram usage.  If you need to upgrade, do it later.

Exchange will use whatever RAM it can get it's hands on and will release it if other services require it, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
