Every tenth grid line is light gray instead of dark grey. On the light gray grid line you'll find a number at the bottom left of the screen, which is distance in kilometers from the bottom left of the entire map. By comparing two consecutive numbers, you can figure out the scale.

So, when fully zoomed out, the bottom left of the map is 0. Ten gridlines to the right, you'll find one labelled 100. That is a 10km (100/10) grid scale.

Hope this helps.

So then the maps in the Full mission builder, the briefing screen and in flight maps are all based on the same scale?

You can compare them.
