Google's banners are probably a good standard to start from.

You can find the most common standard sizes here: Wikipedia: Web banner

As the height is easier to vary than the width in a layout, you will often find advertisers using variations where a standard width is chosen, like for example 250, and different heights are combined with that, like 250x125, 250x250, 250x375.
