You can add each user of a jail to a specific jail group and use group 
quotas at the host environment. These words as shell commands:

insidethejail# pw addgroup jail01 -g 8001 -M `grep -v '^#' 
/etc/master.passwd | cut -d: -f1 | tr '\n' ','`

outsidethejail# pw addgroup jail01 -g 8001 && edquota -g jail01

This is obviously not a safe limitation as long as the root user of a 
jail is able to remove users from this group.
