I'm not sure if there is any way to determine the size of update files other than looking at what has been downloaded on a computer.

However, if You have more than a few PCs by far the most efficient way to handle updates is to set up a Windows Update Server. This means that you limit update downloads to just one time, saving on your Internet costs, however many computers you are updating. It also allows you to review and test updates on a single computer before releasing them at large.

Set auto-update to notification. The Update window will tell you what updates are available and the total size of the (selected) KB's.

If there are still large downloads, that point to other applications than Windows update.

Updates size can go up to 500MB +, depending if you have MS software installed like Office Suite etc..
