A plain-jane image file shouldn't care about ppi.  This depends on your screen, or how you print it (if you print it).  If my math is right, 20mm x 25mm @ 250ppi comes out to 197 x 246 pixels.  That is, if an image is at least 197 x 246 in size, and you print/view at 250ppi, you're all set.  If an image resolution is higher than that, provided you force the 20mm x 25mm dimensions, your ppi will simply increase.

Hi everlast4308, can advise how you calculate it to be 197 x246? thanks

Sure.

Assuming square pixels, your 250ppi guideline applies to each axis.
20 mm = 0.788 in . . . 0.788 in * 250 px per inch = 197 px width
25 mm = 0.984 in . . . 0.984 in * 250 px per inch = 246 px height
