The luminosity is $4\pi d^2$ multiplied by the integral under your SED. i.e. you cannot find the luminosity without knowing the distance $d$ to the source. NB This assumes no extinction (unless that features in your SED model), that the radiation from the source is isotropic and that the source is not significantly redshifted or moving relativistically.
