It's almost certainly in header files somewhere, but it may take some
tracking down.

FreeBSD/i386 has:
typedef __uint32_t  __size_t;       /* sizeof() */

FreeBSD/amd64 has:
typedef __uint64_t  __size_t;       /* sizeof() */

(size_t becomes defined in terms of __size_t)

A Fedora/i386 box I can see has it defined back to unsigned int.

Certainly it's neither int nor long (it's size_t, after all), but it
should be able to hold the size of the largest possible
continuously-addressable block of memory.  On any currently-sane
platform, unsigned long would probably work.  Would be nice if it
could just learn it from the system headers and DTRT up the stack into
