Only the layout process can determine how many lines a block will span.

You can calculate how many lines will fit on a page by working out the
line height or setting the line height (note the if the line height is
set it uses a slightly different number, its a bug) and the spacing
between blocks.

You are probably better of rendering to xml then reading that.
