Simon makes a good point.  I've always considered the devices that SVG Tiny (and even SVG Basic) to be approximately the same sort of devices that Sun (and others) are putting in the MIDP classification.  

But you asked for what devices have these limitations (actually you asked for a percentage).  I can't give you that, but here's some rough numbers.

DoCoMo 503i: 10K
DoCoMo 504i: 30K
KDDI phones:  80K
J-Phone phones:  100K
RIM Blackberry 5810/5820/6710:  64K
Nokia 3410/6310i/7210:  30K

I may have these numbers ***wrong** (I'm just a lowly software developer, not a market research kinda-guy), but they give a rough idea.  

Having said all that, these are published numbers for third-party developers.  If you actually ship on the device (rather than being installed afterwards) you can cheat on some of these limits.
