So I would run:

Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | select ServerName,Name,DatabaseSize  > to get the size of the mailbox store

and

Get-Publicfolderdatabase -status | ft DatabaseSize > to get the size of the public store?

Correct, you could also browse to the physical path of the databases and check the properties of the folders to get the size of them.
