You can't know, fonts can be proportional. If your font is fixed
width, then you can just calculate the size of one character and
do a division.

Have a look at:
>> help textinfo
TEXTINFO face line-info line
Sets the line text information in an object for a face.
TEXTINFO is a native value.
face -- The face for which the information is defined. (Type: object)
line-info -- The object where the information will be set. (Type: object)
line -- The line to get information for. (Type: number any-string)
