If you assume a Schwarzschild black hole, i.e. only mass characterizes the black hole, then the mass of your black hole can be deduced from, 1) m = rc^2/(2G), or roughly 1e4 solar masses. Using this, the tidal force outside the horizon needs to be calculated such that the difference in gravitational acceleration exceeds subatomic forces (I'm assuming you're looking for a disintegration type effect in the surrounding material outside the event horizon). This can be calculated from, 2) r = ((16pi^3GLm/a)^.333)/(2*pi). This will give the radius of atomic breakdown based upon G, a gravitational constant (1.327e20 solar mass), L, distance between subatomic particles (meters), m, mass of the black hole (1e4 solar mass), and a, acceleration required to "rip apart" subatomic particles (m/s^2). I ran through this kind of quickly and didn't plug in the numbers for you at the end but this should put you in the right direction.
