The problem is that what you ask is NOT simple. The java command has several parameters for setting available "memory" (and there's more than one type, and also 'low-' and 'high-'water marks for some values). This article seems to be quite good, and contains explanations about the various types of memory.

Personally, I rarely find I need to worry about it; so there may be better uses for your time until you do. But good hunting.
