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.

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
