Depends on the unit, depends on the role. For a dwarf combat unit, I'd start at 30 or bigger. For little support units, you can have units of 10 or 15 (slayers if you want them would generally be smaller units like that).

My dwarf units start at 30 even for slayers, undead is at 40-50 skaven, goblins and gnoblars are at that or higher. Most archer units fall in the 10-20 unit size. Have fun with those number :-).

It depends on the quality of the dwarf infantry. I only run longbeards, hammerers and ironbreakers and you can get away with smaller units of them especially with character support. I run my hammerers in a unit of 28 with a shield-surfing lord, my 24 ironbreakers hold my bsb and 24 longbeards escort the runesmith. The thunderers go in 2 units of 10 so if I need to move one for whatever reason I still have 1 unit shooting.

Put the rune of battle on your ironbreaker's standard. If they have the bsb in with them as well it means they are starting any combat at +6 static combat resolution. That's tough for your opponent to overcome, especially with the gromril armour.
