Why isn't "What's your age?" accepted?

while not incorrect, it is quite unnatural to ask this way in English

연세가 어떻게 되세요? how old are you? honorific
나이가 어떻게 되세요? how old are you?
연세 is the honorific of 나이, you can also use
이에요? how old are you?

I don't see anything in the sentence to imply "you". Couldn't "How old is she?" work here just as well?

How do you literally translate this sentence?

I think it would be "How did your age become"? (How as in condition not as in means so a more vague translation would be what did your age become)
