Does anybody how much current Sainsmart 7-inch TFT display n

I have this display ( ... a-2av.html) with me but couldn't find any manufacturing data about it's input. All it says is it needs to be 12 V. But I don't know how much mA it needs. If anyone can answer I would be really grateful.

Sometimes they give power in Watts instead of current (mA). If so then mA can be calculated.
If the user manual does not specify either, then either ask the seller, or measure it yourself with a multimeter.
If you don't know how to measure mA with a meter the be sure to ask.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
