I am not so sure: Amazon has most of the market for cloud computing, but its 0.5M servers run a Red Hat derivative (I assume it is Amazon Linux). Also, apparently there are less than 1M servers on the intertubes, and sadly not all of them are running Debian.
I don't know how many machines running Ubuntu are there; I seem to recall another million of desktops. But it is difficult to characterize those as Debian, really.
Then there are virtualized servers which are certainly Debian but they are not so easy to compute. I can create 10 instances at the push of a button; do they count?
It is indeed a tricky question. I am sure that the Debian people must have stats of how many updates they see per day, and it would not be too hard to finger-print them, but I think nobody does.
