Hi Sovan,

The net is 15.25cm high or 6 inches.  IT is also allowed to be up to 15.25cm outside the line of the table.

Here is the complete rule about the net from the ITTF website.

2.02.01  The net assembly shall consist of the net, its suspension and the supporting posts, including the clamps attaching them to the table. 
2.02.02  The net shall be suspended by a cord attached at each end to an upright post 15.25cm high, the outside limits of the post being 15.25cm outside the side line. 
2.02.03  The top of the net, along its whole length, shall be 15.25cm above the playing surface.  
2.02.04  The bottom of the net, along its whole length, shall be as close as possible to the playing surface and the ends of the net shall be attached to the supporting posts from top to bottom.
