ccl::foreign-size should do the job.

Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.1-r7569 (DarwinX8664)!
? (ccl::foreign-size :id)
? (ccl::foreign-size :<NSR>ect)
? (ccl::foreign-size (:struct :timeval))

By default, the size is returned in bits, but you can ask for the size  
in bytes or machine words by specifying :bytes or :words as an  
optional last argument.

? (ccl::foreign-size :<NSR>ect :bytes)
