Terminal Server requirements for Windows 2008 R2

we have been offered to move our SAP Business One server to the cloud. The price is not bad, but the provider has not been very clear regarding how users will connect to the SAP Client. They say that using 'Terminal Server' is the way to go.

Now, the company I work have 100 users, and the SAP server (with its MS SQL Server 2012 R2), currelty runs on 64GB RAM.
To me, they have not considered RAM for "Terminal Server" users.

Can someone tell me how much RAM is recommended to add to our server for 100 users?

First of all, you should install a new server which will host the Terminal Services.  You should set aside minimum 1 GB per each concurrent users (preferably 2 GB).  If you are going to have 100 users concurrently logged one then you should have 2 hosts with minimum of 64 GB of memory.
It's not always necessary to set aside 1 GB.  RDP sessions log in at 30 MB and grows from there.  It depends entirely on what software users need to run.  You can limit the sessions to run critical stuff that you want to run there and have users run other things on their own systems to reduce the total load on your RDP server.  It really depends on the exact needs.
