I'm using the tool Can You Run It? from system requirements lab just to see how well SC2 would run on my comp (in Win7) and for some reason I'm getting a reading that I have 1.9GB of Vram. I know I don't but why would this come up? Is it reading some RAM as VRAM instead for some reason?

If you have an integrated video card it shares the vram with the regular ram so yes it wont be able to accurately read how much you have.

Don't forget that Widows Vista and 7 are supposedly able to allocate more RAM for the graphics chips if it is needed (it scales based on the amount if system RAM you have). This could easily account for the large amount, and can be checked in the nVidia control panel under "System Information".
