This somewhat depends on the style and "visual weight" of the pendant. Initially they could range from 7-11". Do you have a pendant in mind?

here is also an article that may help:

Thank you for your advice. I am thinking about the Hudson Valley Haverhill, 8" wide in old bronze. My cabinets are white, inset, my island is oak, stained coffee, an apothecary look, and marble on the island, and cosmic black on the perimeter counters; appliances are brushed chrome and faucets/ sink are brush nickel.

You are welcome.
ELK also makes a similar fixture. We do not have it on our website but it is about $150 less expensive. It is at the lower end of the range at 6" diameter.

Do you have a photo of your kitchen? I could do a rendering of the pendants over the island to give you a better visual of how they would look in the space.
