It really depends on your graph and how it is used. Most likely you can just count all the nodes that are not leaf nodes. Any of the things that the objects can share could be considered classes.

if all the nodes are connected, does that mean there is a single class comprised of all the nodes?

Maybe if you could post an image of the graph you are looking at it would help. There are a few different kinds of "similarity graphs."

It also depends on how you are defining "class." Would something like "gray cat" be a class or would the classes be "gray" and "cat" and a gray cat object would be a member of both classes?

The nodes all being connected usually just means things are all related to each other in some way. For example, "gray dog" connects to "gray" which connects to "gray cat" but there's no class that comprises all of them.
