You CAN NOT pipe water or water buckets into it, only unmanned mode applies. (subject to change, depends on popular demand)For example :
1 watermill calculates a 3x3x3 area
"LV" (8 ) watermill would calculate a 7x7x7 area
"MV" (64) watermill would calculate a 13x13x13 area
"HV" (512) watermill would calculate a 25x25x25 area
"EV" (4096) watermill would calculate a 49x49x49 area

Compact watermills (UNMANNED ONLY) would work, given enough calculations.
Pumping water into watermills makes even less sense than the unmanned mode.
For example :
1 watermill calculates a 3x3x3 (25 blocks max due watermill and cable) outputting up to 0,25 EU/t
"LV" (8 ) watermill would calculate a 7x5x7 (242 blocks max due watermill and cable) outputting up to 2,42 EU/t
"MV" (64) watermill would calculate a 13x11x13 (1853 blocks max due watermill and cable) outputting up to 18,53 EU/t
"HV" (512) watermill would calculate a 25x23x25 (14363 blocks max due watermill and cable) outputting up to 143,63 EU/t
"EV" (4096) watermill would calculate a 49x47x49 (112823 blocks max due watermill and cable) outputting up to 1128,23 EU/t
Fancy rotors could be added.
I know this is not realistic, but at least follows IC² "unmanned" aspect.
Real watermills would require a big dam + waterfalls + watermills with rotors on the end of waterfall to transform gravitational energy into kinetic and then into electrical.

Use these formulas and you are good :3

Well, my original idea was something like that..Pumping ? ... this would mean free infinite energy ... I've suggested a detailed system sith dams and tanks on the "Compact windmill" addon Thread if you want.

You know that pumping water is limited per water line right? (a golden Waterproof pipe is limited to 40mb/t input/output, a TE liquiduct is limited to 100mb/t input/output Per connection) So in theory you wouldn't be able to get infinite power. Cause the mill only have 5 sides so that's only up to 500mb/t or 250eu/t worth of water. (a bucket of water gives off 1 eu/t for 500 ticks) To even balance it better have side(s) that are allowed to be pumped in and just that. Also you could limit how much water get into the mill per tick so to prevent any "super" water pipes that may exists later. As for cell inputting, that's is simple to prevent spammers just have the mill consume one whatever you feel like is balanced (say one per 2 ticks). Pumping in water is somewhat is real life water power. Pumped water=pressure and that drives the turbines. However turbines are limited at pressure or else they'll break. So the LV mill would example can't be pumped with much water on the other hand a HV one could goes a little more crazy.Pumping ? ... this would mean free infinite energy ...

Water power RL doesnt pump water, it takes high pressure water from dams (water from river [which eventually came from rain]) and makes it flow through turbines, simple as that.Or else..

Though I don't know how to explode something yet

While you can't do real hydroelectric powerplants, you can do something that is close to it, making the watermills dependant on the thing the real powerplant is : RainHowever like past said it's nearly impossible to put in real hydro electricity generation mechanics in MC. (or at least for now)
