i think it doesn't matter if you are tall or not...i'm 177cm tall and i don't mind the lengths of my bikes
but maybe someone else can give you an exact length

While there is no said TT length to height ratio, there are some things you can go by. Racing bikes are usually divied up by Pro, XL, XXL, etc. You could look on their product charts to compare the suggested height to TT length. If you're 6' 2" i would personally recomend 20.75" or 21". But ride some of your friends bikes, and get a feel for what you like. Flatlanders will ride anything from 18" to 19.5", and plenty of them are tall. there's lots of room for judgement on this issue, but my guess is you'll be most comfortable on a longer bike.

I'm about 6'1", and i ride a 20.5. However, I am getting a 21 soon because of trouble with Xups, barspins, etc. BUt i would suggest riding different bikes to get a feel for the lengths.

I'm 6'2 and 20.5 sucked ass and not only felt horrible it gave me stretch marks on my back from hunching. 21 is much better and I can ride much better.
