I've never heard of 4" cake pans and have only seen guidelines for 2" or 3". What I have done before is to take a one cup measure and measure out water into the pans to see how much they will hold. I don't think I would go much over half full and definitely use an upside down flower nail to help with the baking in the center.

Contact the manufacturer, usually they have the information. I bought some Fat Daddio pans (which I'm not to happy with but that's another story) and they emailed me the batter capacity.

Personally, I would never bake a cake 4" tall. It will be so dry and hard edged by the time the center is done. You can still use the pans with less batter of course, but I never bake a cake over 2"... 2.5" if I am in a pinch.
