How can I count how much lines are visible in the same time on specific listbox. The user have the ability to change the font size, so I need to know how many lines are visible in any font size.

Try this...
function TListBox.VisibleLines: Integer;
begin
  Result := Height div (Abs(Self.Font.Height) + 2);
end;

You can divide the ListBox.Height over the ListBox.ItemHeight.
You can write the following code in a Button onclick event:
Showmessage(IntToStr(ListBox1.Height Div ListBox1.ItemHeight));

a bit spice it up:

function ListBoxItemsVisible( aListBox : TListBox ) : Integer;
var    MaxItems   : Integer ;
begin

     MaxItems := aListBox.Items.Count;

     result := round (aListBox.ClientHeight /  aListBox.ItemHeight) ;

     
     if result > MaxItems then result := MaxItems;   //  if ListBox not full, report the count of items inside the box


end;
