The number of black squares in the columns are eight distinct numbers in the range between 0 and 8.
The total number of black squares on the board should be divisible by 8, so clearly the missing number is 4.
There are 23 different possible percentages that can be realized on the diagonals:
Since there are only two 8-long diagonals, we cannot get the four possibilities (1/8, 3/8, 5/8 and 7/8). Also we only have four 7-long diagonals, so we cannot get the six possibilities ( 1/7, 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7, 6/7). Thus the maximum is 19.
One can get it quite easily by playing a little with row and column permutations.
We chose to show Mark Pervovskiy's solution since it was the nicest looking one:
