As i understand from the above, you have two questions here.

1. Regarding counting the number of values for a characteristic: There is no direct table method to extract the number of Values for a particular confiugration. Sap stores the configuration info in instances.

You can discuss with your technical consultant to get the info for a particular instance( particular configuration). Technical consultants can easily develop some customized report to get this info.

2. Restrict the number of values to 6: If you have such a requirement then you have to use pre-conditions (based on the business rules) for each of the value , so that when user select more than 6 then he will get some kind of inconstency or error.

Hope this helps.
