TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'm not sure I agree with that. "Words" are just a small part of the total cost of technical documentation. Other parts include labour, cost of real-estate, translations, technical illustrations, cost of SW used for the creation and maintenance of the technical documentation. So basing the estimate on cost per word would be misleading.

Any such estimates would have to be based on word count, not pages.
