You can use the getblock API and look at the size field of its output, for any particular block hash. You can get the hash of a block number using getblockhash. I don't think you can get average/meximum statistics directly from MultiChain, so you'd need to calculate them yourself.

The size shown in the getblock result, is it in KB, bytes or what unit?
It's measured in bytes.
