In short, if you want your estimate to be closer then run some actual
ingestion for say 1-5% of your total docs and extrapolate since every
search product may have different schema,different set of fields, different
index vs. stored fields,  copy fields, different analysis chain etc.

If you want to just have a very quick rough estimate, create few flat json
sample files (below) with field names and key values(actual data for better
estimate). Put all the fields names which you are going to index/put into
Solr and check the json file size. This will give you average size of a doc
and then multiply with # docs to get a rough index size.

{
"id":"product12345"
"name":"productA",
"category":"xyz",
...
...
}

Thanks,
Susheel
