Here's a quote from Gardens, page 101.

"Though Bellurdan knelt, his head came near to her own height. The Thelomen High Mage etc."

"Her" in this case is Tattersail, who I got the impression wasn't exactly tiny :D

The Bonehunter, p 23. Samar Dev on Karsa Orlong:

"You are half again taller than a normal man."

So we're talking 9 feet tall. Though if you want to be cautious, in the range 8-10 feet instead.

Like I said, picking out quotes from the books that say how tall Karsa is is pointless. For every quote that definitively states how tall he is, there is another that states he is a different height. You have to pick which of the confirmed heights you want to think of him as, accept the quotes that support that height, and ignore the ones that state something different. It's not like there are 20 different lines saying he is one height, and one contradictory statement. They all are contradictory.

I think we can all agree on that.

besides do we not know exactly how tall normal humans are in this series on average (neither should we), perhaps there are continental or regional variations too. And who knows what size the humans Semar Dev has come into contact with...even judging with what would be logical we could assume humans are between 5'5 average height and 6'.

But we can agree firstly that karsa's tall and that secondly there are a few contradictory statements. It's all a matter of personal preference, in life different opinions and set of events contradict themselves without restraint it seems. And as Raymond says just pick the version of the height you like best.
