You should start tracking the actual time for testing preparation (analysis, test cases, checklists, documentation review, etc) and the actual time for test execution. Once you have a baseline derived from real times, you can provide good estimates.

If you don't yet have these baselines then you can estimate based upon risk and complexity. By using a High, Medium and Low categorization, you review the use cases or requirements and assign each one a value based upon risk and complexity and then determine how many tests are required for each specific use case or requirement. 

Determine how much time is likely for testing one High test case, one Medium test case and one Low test case and then multiply each by the number of test cases.  That should provide a fair estimate when an actual baseline is not available.
