Speaker wire does not need to be very heavy gauge, but 20 is REALLY thin.

I would not use lighter than 16 gauge for any speakers.

Technically it will work in terms of audibility, but it is definitely unusually small. In a few months when you get a bigger amp/better speakers (which is the case 90% of the time) you'll have to run bigger wire. Might as well spend the extra $5 and do it now.
