since d3d compresses textures when loading them into video memory and also might generate mipmaps levels of them how would i know the size of memory occupied by this resource.

Generally speaking, you can't (As far as I know). You could use IDirect3DDevice9::GetAvailiableTextureMem() before and after loading the texture, but that won't be particularly accurate.
