One way to figure this out is to go to strategy testers Results tab and see the average position holding time and multiply this by the number of trades then this product is divided by the backtest period. There might be simpler ways to do it but this should get the job done.

Cheers,

EDIT:

Please note that this method is not 100% accurate in every case though :(

Oh and of course one approach if to solve this programmatically. One could code a block that keeps track of the time the EA is exposed to the markets and logs this somewhere.
