From manual page: https://php.net/imagick.requirements
The ONE thing I expect from this page is to tell me what are the requirements in order to install this pecl extension.
It says "PHP >= 5.1.3 and ImageMagick >= 6.2.4 is required.", hence I should be able to assume that, if I have those, I have all that is needed.
I followed the generic installation instructions at https://www.php.net/manual/en/install.pecl.phpize.php and I got the error:
error: not found. Please provide a path to MagickWand-config or Wand-config program.
I had to google it to find out the answer on serverfault.com that I needed to install these:
sudo apt-get install libmagickwand-dev libmagickcore-dev
This should have been in the Requirements page.

You tried to compile the extension and not install it, therefore needing the dev packages is expected.
A command to install this extension on Ubuntu using the APT package manager would be:
sudo apt-get install php-imagick
which will install the extension.
We cannot provided instruction for how to install extensions as it depends by distribution.
