Are you working on the Esprit or a Boeing 747 ? The motor under normal load conditrions will draw between 5 and 10A, and may get as high as 15 under stall conditions. Bear in mind that you are only wiring up short runs of cable, so volt driop isn't going to be an issue at all. Something about 2.5mm x-section area should be OK and easily handle 25amps at 12v.

The relay is just rated fro up to 40amps, think about the size of the fuse, the wire must be capable of more than the fuse (the fuse must rupture at less than the cable is capable of).
