I think there are two elements to consider. First is the thermal heating, melting of structure to consider. Then there is the helium steam explosion. I suspect this this second process would do most of the damage, at least outside of the magnet casing itself. Also, in [EDIT- LHC, not ITER's case (the magnets and cooling system is probably separate for each magnet(?)). In LHC the helium coolent may be shared in a common system] the explosive decompression when/ if the vacuum wall is breached might cause significant damage to other internal structures upstream and down stream of the failed magnet.
