Something like that:

--- begin untested C code ---


hStdOut = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
   ; /* Error - we don't have stdout at all. Strange a bit.
        We might want to call GetLastError() to get some reason */

if (! GetConsoleScreenBufferInfo(hStdOut, &csbiInfo))
   ; /* No limits at all - output is not a console? */

/* Now we have maximum width as csbiInfo.dwSize.X
    and maximum height as csbiInfo.dwSize.Y */

--- end untested C code ---

MSDN is a huge peace of useful stuff - at least for the Windows world :)
