They will usually create whatever heat you need, unless you are in Antarctica, and your tank is outside. Just don't put the mat under the tank; put it on one side or the other. I would actually suggest a ceramic heat bulb. It uses IR to heat the tank, thus no visible light, to disturb the room; not to mention they put off lovely heat. They're a bit expensive, but they work!

Heater is 20x20cm and terarium is 20 x 40 cm..... so I meant it to go in the middle because I have the tank seperated in the middle so both scorpions can have warmer and colder sides.

If your room temp is 20+ then I suppose it should be enough.
