This is normal for just a simple service. After changing the filter and installing the pan, start with 4qt and add as necessary to reach stick full mark. Drive until trans comes to operating temp and recheck fluid level.
If also draining convertor, cooling lines or a complete overhaul, of course it will take more fluid. There is no definite fill amount as case, pan, convertor size and cooling lines may differ from one line to another.
