What is the average current draw of the RTC of a Celeron N3160?

While an N3160 is powered off except for a coin cell battery backup for the RTC, what is the average current draw on the coin cell from the RTC? The datasheet for the celeron N series specifies a Maximum current draw of 6 microamps, but says that this number shouldn't be used for battery life estimates since it's a maximum. What is the average current draw I can use to verify my coin cell will last long enough, and in what document is this specified?

 

Thank you in advance for your help.
