No, that is not a layer that strongSwan or freeradius does have access to. You need to log (and account) the user's traffic using, for example, a netflow collector or ulogd2 (which can use Linux's native conntrack connection tracking system) to capture the relevant data. Using ulogd2 is advised, because unless you disabled conntrack for the relevant connections, you are basically guaranteed to get all information from conntrack (unless ulogd2 can't keep up, but then you don't have enough resources, so you have another issue already).
