Men: A 16kg kettlebell is a good starting point for the average man. This sized kettlebell will serve you for some time and when you outgrow it, they always come in handy for warm-ups, high-rep sets and when you're trying to master a new kettlebell exercise.
When you're proficient with the 16kg kettlebell most men move onto the 24kg, 32kg kettlebells, and then onto double kettlebell training.
Women: The average woman should start with an 8kg kettlebell and athletic women can begin with a 12kg kettlebell. Some women work their way up to 16kg kettlebells upwards.
Note: It's a common problem to buy a kettlebell that's too heavy for your strength / skill level.
A 16kg kettlebell might not sound particularly heavy but for the beginner male it's usually more than sufficient. It's dangerous to buy a kettlebell that is beyond your means and please bear in mind that kettlebell training is fundamentally different to standard weight training as there are many swinging exercises as well as lifts.
If in doubt select a lighter kettlebell and work up.
