None of these answers the question. The point of this saying was to create a tongue twister for a popular song. It also has a reasonable answer if you figure out how much material a woodchuck can move and equate that weight to the weight of wood. A woodchuck chucks dirt usually instead of wood.

The song goes "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
if a woodchuck could chuck wood."
Its' from a comedy musical called "the Runaways".

Somethings do not have a deeper meaning.

An approximate answer would be 700 pounds of wood.
