In the U.S., a size of about 350 to 450 g seems standard for a box of cereal. However, many "budget" brands have introduced much larger boxes for a similar price. More expensive cereals and organic cereals tend to come in smallish boxes.

Here's what I found around my house:

Marshmallow Mateys (bag)......1070 g
Cinnamon Toasters......890 g
Golden Puffs......765 g
Honey Bunches of Oats Fruit Blend...411 g
Life Maple Toast.....370 g
(I forgot) Organic Flax Cereal...330 g (my sister's, contrasting with those above!)

What are the common sizes of box cereals in your country?

We have I think the same size. Here there isn't really a difference in the cerals sold.

Most of the cereal boxes seem to be about 550g.
I don't eat cereal anymore as it is unhealthy but I used to eat the white Krave and Crunchy nut, sometimes I would eat the cookie crisp or the wheat cereal.

Depends what cereal, but yeah even cereal marketed as healthy is often quite high in sugar. Sugar-free grains/unsweetened muesli/oats with fruits is probably a healthier option.

375g boxes are standard here, too, although there are also some brands which are sold in 600g boxes.

The normal box is 375gr, the box with 500gr is considered big.
