Actually, this shouldn't be necessary any more as this is the default.
However, it depends on which skin you are using.

You might try putting the line in pub/css/local.css (create pub/css/
if needed), then it will be available for *every* skin.

You could also try setting in local/config.php:

   XLSDV('en', array('e_cols' => 60, 'e_rows' => 25));

which sets the default row= and col= parameter for the text area
to be 60 x 25 characters.  Again, it depends heavily on the skin
you may be using and if the skin is overriding PmWiki's default
