You want your third argument to be the optional prefix-arg, and then
using the raw prefix arg specifier, P, in the interactive form for
that argument, you'll get a nil if it's not specified.  The
(or width 4) form will evaluate to width if width is non-nil, 4 otherwise.

Try this:

(defun irFrequent (beg end &optional width)
  "`indent-rigidly' region with 4 spaces, or prefix-arg spaces if provided"
  (interactive "r\nP")
  (indent-rigidly beg end (or width 4)))
