If you have the winch you can find gear ratio by turning it.
If you do not have the winch and are looking for the GR of Barient 22 it is again easy. Generally the numbers given in the specification of winches denominates its Power Ratio. If you know the PR you can find GR if you know the diameter of the winch. Generally winch specifications are given 10 inch handle. For your case:

GR=22/(10/r)
