Sump issues

The tank I'm using to make my sump is 31" x 14" x 17" and my skimmer's footprint requires 10" of the 31". That leaves 21" to be divided between the refugium, return and baffles. How much capacity do I need for the refugium / return? My pump will fit in an area 4" wide but in my opinion that is not enough capacity, not to mention overflow if it looses power. Any suggestion?

I guess I need to mention the display tank is a 90 using two 1" drains and the pump is 900 gph.
