Do you mean the geometry or the font size?

To change the font size after starting xt5250, hold down Ctrl, click
the right-hand mouse button in the window, and choose a different
font.  To change it at startup, either edit the existing xt5250 script
and add -fn 'fontname', or do the same to a copy.

5250 terminals are usually 80x24, plus a status line.  Some AS/400
applications support a larger terminal (132x27) on particular screens.
xt5250 supports this if started with the right terminal type, like:

  xt5250 -y IBM-3477-FC as400sys
