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.
Want to get a clue on IPv6 but don't know where to start? Try this:

* Setup -> http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2001/06/01/ipv6_tutorial.html
Of course with your #1 IPv6 ready operating system -> http://www.NetBSD.org/
