In C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi 3\Demos\RICHEDIT\Richedit.dpr
there is an example in the About Box.
I have tested it on 95 and the dwTotalPhys parameter showed the correct value.

even if u fill the editor  with 100000000 lines
the memory used (at the about sub menu)  b4 and After is the same.
its not logic ....

Look at the following codes, they do the same:
http://www.borland.co.uk/devsupport/delphi/ti_list/TI3231.html
http://www.chami.com/tips/delphi/122496D.html

I have tried it and after closing some windows, available memory changed.

Notice that dwAvailPhys shows the amount of Physical memory available in your computer so that if you "finished" your Physical memory and start to use the virtual memory this parameter will show 0.
