Hi i read the show version already...

But don't know why 20 Mb showing since document shows only 16Mb and even download software shows 16MB for 2950 switches.

8 MB Memory shared by all ports out of 20 MB of RAM. Rest of available memory 7.8 is allocated for system processes. Currently working IOS is limited features without crypto. It is normal utilization in your setup.

4 Mb extra is how come being utilized...
