Hi Jianfeng,
You can specify width/height of ribbon using Ribbon Style Editor (in menu under Tools... Depiction), the Scaling section.  Optionally, you can save the "scaling" so it will be easy to apply the same dimensions later with the ribscale command. For example, if you had named your scaling "plump": 

ribscale plump

Ribbon Style Editor:

"ribscale" command:

I hope this helps,
