Mounting height and CFM questions for 5 burner cooktop. [Moved from Not About Food board]

Chowhounds,

Hope you can share some suggestions....we will be purchasing a 30 inch gas cooktop for our tiny kitchen. this cooktop has 54k total btu's with 5 burners.
i'm concerned about 2 issues. the first is the 21" height from the cooktop to the bottom of the range hood. I just feel it is not enough clearance. The 2nd issue is that I'm not sure 300 CFM is adequate for the amt of heat generated. Obviously we do not want to go over budget w/higher CFM if we don't need to, however it is very important to have the right hood since our kitchen space is tiny. please advise,
thanks.
