It has been established that Westeros south of the Wall has approximately 40 million people. The North is neither the least nor most populated of the constituent Kingdoms.
6 million people would make it more or less mid sized for one of the Seven Kingdoms.
Put another way, that would still mean that 85% of the people in the Seven Kingdoms live on the Southern half of the continent, with only 15% living on the Northern half.
also keep in mind that Iron Islands can't possibly hold 6 million people (i'd say 1 or 2 at max), Vale probably doesn't have 6 either - mountain region and all (I'd give them 4 or 5) and our sweet but not so populated Dorne - about 3 mil or so
As for the 15% overall population spread over half a continent - it would explain Robert's impression in AGOT but
it would also make tiny Iron Islands (assuming they host 1 or 2 mil ppl) extremely overpopulated (like KL spread over archipelago of tiny islands)
i think North can have much bigger population than average 6 mil and still give that graveyard chill
