In brief: As much as you like

As long as you tolerate it.
.. You can/and should walk as much as you desire --- assuming that you primary care doctor and/or cardiologist do not have an issue with it.

It is important to maintain strength and range of motion as part of a osteoarthritis management plan. A walking program will also help with weight loss.
