Inode limit can be considered as a number of files and directories one customer can own. Default wordpress installation has approx 1,100 files/directories , default magento install is 10,000 , you would need to consider at least 30,000 to be an inode limit for minimal package for your customers.

You can calculate a limits basing on current usage of your customers by running the following command. It will list top 50 entries that use inodes the most:
repquota -a | grep -v root | awk '{print $6" "$1 }' | sort -g | tail -50

Do not forget - temporary files and session files are also counted toward the inode limit.
