If London used the same metro area calculations as NY which are around six and a half thousand square miles or an area roughly the size of all three yorkshire ridings combined, then not just the home counties but the whole of south east england would have to be taken in to account, giving a population of around 18-20 million. In the London Home counties alone (which are basically the adjoining suburban counties surrounding London) there are betwen 7 and 8 million, and London's Greater Urban Area (continous urban build up beyond London) is around 9.3 million.
With these calculus Paris metro has 16 million inhabitants.

11.1 million inhabitants is for Ile de France region in 1999 (Now over 11.5 million) but Paris metro is not exactly the same than Ile de France, Paris metropolitan area has 12 million inhabitants.

6.7 million inhabitants is the city core of the urban area.
