The device side implementation of omp_get_num_devices() in clang returns 0,
for the implementation.

That is standards conforming if I understand correctly, but not
particularly convenient for the user. A downstream fork adds a couple of
fields to the global omptarget_device_environment to implement
get_num_devices and get_device_num.

I can put a patch together for this.
