I am working on SharePoint Project Estimation.

Are there any standard practices for estimation of a SharePoint portal?

  • Are you including hardware and software licenses in this as well?

It depends.

It depends on what you are estimating. Cost? Time? Storage? Availability? Backup and Restore? Development? Maintenance & Support? Growth?

Have a browse on the TechNet website for SharePoint, there are many documents and white papers around the planning of a SharePoint implementation. But the recommended practice is generally: get a Microsoft Partner to help you.
