It's hard to tell what the real number is, but maybe a few facts to think

 * At my school, we have 4 public machines running NetBSD. They're part
   of a NIS domain with >1000 users.
 * On the NetBSD mailing lists, there are 8715 different addresses
 * IBM sold >= 20.000 NCs running NetBSD on PowerPC and i386.

There are sure other such facts that you could add up, and you will still
not get a realistic number.  NetBSD is not (only) a desktop OS where
number of installations == number of users, as such it's not feasible to
get realistic numbers easily.
