    Looks to be around 10's of thousands per day.

    Here's a couple press releases for Angry Birds, which floats around #1 to #4:

    But the number of downloads falls off steeply from the top spot to only a few per day around app #40000 out of 400,000 total apps.

    I found a couple blog posts that attempt to estimate the number of downloads from the App store ranking:

    and

    Doesn't look super accurate, but the equations are probably more useful than throwing darts at random numbers.
