This is a documentation bug: these functions are available only on
some systems, which support special ioctl commands that are the basis
for the implementation of these functions (notably, GNU/Linux).
Windows doesn't support that functionality, so the functions are not
available.

I will update the ELisp manual accordingly (and try to look for a
possible alternative implementation on Windows).

Thanks for pointing this out (but in the future, please post this to
bug-gnu-emacs or emacs-devel, not here).
