There really is no true meaning. It is a tongue twister. In otherwords people try to say it fast and see if it comes out as something different or if they mess up. Sometimes they challenge others with this question,"How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood." It may confuse others in a laughable manner. Kids have fun seeing who can say it and who can't. In conclusion, this expression doesn't have a real meaning and its just said for fun. A woodchuck can chuck wood though. And people really do try to answer this question with estimates. So your answer, its a tongue twister.
