Do you know the diameter of the pinhole and the pressure of the fluid?

I think you need those two items at the very least to properly compute it.

If I had a pinhole leak in a garden hose, I'd catch the water in a bucket of known volume and time how long it took to fill it up and from there I could get the gallons per minute leakage.
