Unfortunately, we don't know that. Mainly because Qin Xi Huangdi (or Qin Shi HUandi) lived 200 bc. From that time we only have one report. It's the "Shiji" written by Sima Qian, who lived 120 years after Qin Xi Huangdi died. So everything he wrote, are based on stories and legends. Often we can't tell what is true, because some of those stories are too crazy and weird to be true.

But, we know he killed a lot. It's possible that it was a million or even more.
People died during the wars he thought, people starved because they had to pay high taxes, a lot died while building the Great Wall, killed scholars and a lot more.
