You can try Structure plugin, which can aggregate estimates upwards in the hierarchy - but you'll need to create a "meta-issue" representing the total, and then add all issues from the backlog under that "total" issue as sub-issues (you can use the same JQL condition as advised by Mathias).
In this way you can also have totals per-epic.
