As Art suggests, Wintopo can be used to convert raster images to vector; however, I think a more direct method for quickly "measuring" your JPEG image has been overlooked.

In SolidWorks (with a sketch open for editing) you can use the main menu "Tools/Sketch Tools/Sketch Picture" to import any of a number of graphic file formats to appear in the background. (Keep in mind that this differs from the insertion of an OLE object in the background of the Part file's viewport and can ONLY be seen when the sketch containing it is being edited.)

Such an image can be scaled when it's first imported or afterwards by double clicking on it (within the sketch viewport).
