The depth of joint that needs filling, width of the joint, shape of the blocks (i.e. open areas at rounded or angled-off corners, etc), and how coarse and angular the sand is all make a big difference in the amount of sand needed. Could be as little as maybe 10 sacks or so with very tight joints and a coarse sand, might take a pallet or much more with wide joints and a rounded fine sand.

Obviously a bit of a problem if planning this as a commercial job (you as contractor) but in that case you likely would be able to come up with a good idea of demand anyway, and undoubtedly have a truck so you can run and get more sacks or another pallet load or skipload as needed. For DIY, perhaps buy a few sacks of the sand you want (plain or polymerized as applicable) and see how many measured square feet of coverage you get, then figure out how many more you need and whether you can transport it yourself, need pallet load delivery, or want a bulk delivery. (If it needs resanding, do NOT have a loaded delivery truck drive onthe paers - they could move around).
