Punch Chisel

blacksmithing anvil size?

Would a 20kg(44lb) anvil be heavy enough for a hobby blacksmith for making tools like punches chisels knife axe hammers? Obviously work would be slower than with a big anvil but at what point is there too little weight?

Yes, you are right, anvil sizes ARE rated by weight so really the surface area is a "function" of weight. The bigger (heavier) the anvil the more working surface area you will have.
And yes the heavier anvil you have, the more quickly and easily your work will progress.
But for such tools ask about, they are relatively small so that size will be fine, especially as a hobby, if you were to go "pro" you would want a bigger one, say, twice that size (100#)
