Last year, Andrew Lewman analysed the log files of his website mirror
to answer that question:
<http://archives.seul.org/tor/talk/Jul-2014/msg00565.html>

His number seems surprisingly high, but the analysis should be taken
with a grain of salt.  For example, users who find their way to a mirror
(instead of using the official web site) might be more technical, and as
a result more likely to verify downloads.  Also, the analysis did not
weed out bots and other noise.
