You'll have to measure that, as the cmc is ionic strength dependent. The  
easiest way to do that is described in:

          TITLE=  {Fluorimetric determination of critical micelle  
concentration avoiding interference from detergent charge},
          JOURNAL={Anal. Biochem.},
          YEAR= {1984},
          VOLUME= {139},
          PAGES= {408-412}
