You are thinking about this in the wrong direction, AFAIU.  On
text-mode terminals, colors are just indices into a table, and the
table itself is not exposed.  How the indices are mapped to the actual
colors is entirely up to the terminal emulator.  So it is not useful
to think about these colors in terms of bots per pixel.
