You could just expose sizeof(struct _iob) as a #define and require that the 
initializer get passed a char* or void* that defines that area:

#define IOB_SIZE  32

void initializeIOBuffers(char* buffers, uint8_t nBuffers);

... later ...

#define NBUFFERS 3
char myBuffers[ NBUFFERS * IOB_SIZE ];
initializeIOBuffers(myBuffers, NBUFFERS);
