You based it first with how much data space you have but still will depend on the VPS traffic you have for each one and how light, heavy the usage is.

It really comes down to the usage on the system itself as said above. We can't tell how much resources your clients would be using and you should always monitor the usage on your VPS nodes to make sure everyone is getting good performance. Granted if you are looking to provide a budget service you could put as much on there as you like if you don't care about the performance it all comes down to what your goals are.

What VMs? Would they host websites or do anything cpu heavy? Depends on many variables.

This will have to do with the type of use on VMs. Some may use CPU extensive applications whereas some may use I/O extensive applications. While there you technically could - let's say - 30 or 40 VMs on such a node in terms of available resources, if all these VMs were to be used for quite high I/O extensive stuff, you may hit disk bottleneck easily and the performance may go bad quickly. If the type of use unknown, the best approach to monitor the system in terms of performance metrics in the long-run.

First, you should calculate the disk space. I think you are going to use RAID 10, right? Then 4x 1TB means you'll have 2TB space available. 50GB for each VM. So, not more than 40 VMs.
