It’s really a matter of preference for how long they should be, but as far as ordering, I’d order rolls of burlap in your desired widths so that you’re only dealing with two unfinished edges instead of four (unless you want all the edges unfinished).  You can find rolls of assorted lengths online en masse.  If you’re not concerned with unfinished edges, you can get large burlap squares on the cheap from garden supply stores.  I think they are 90″ squares and could then be easily cut down to fit your needs.

My thought for sizing would be an overhang of about a foot on either end for the long tables, so 10ft strips of burlap probably about 3 feet wide.  For the square tables, you just need to determine how much of the table you want to cover.  Are you just trying to accent the centerpieces or do you want them to cover most of the table?  If just the centerpieces, then a 2ft square should be sufficient.  If more of the table, then just work out from there.
