Try /usr/ucb/df. First column is the mount point, second is the total size.

Note that due to pooling, compression, deduplication, quotas, reservations, snapshots, copies and other specific features, the notion of available and total disk (actually file system) space shown by "df" or other commands tends to be less meaningful and often confusing when you use ZFS.
