Not sure your question makes sense. I think when you say size of the
TextView you may really mean the size of the GtkScrolledWindow
containing the text view, and when you say TextBuffer you may mean the

If so then you'd put the textview in a scrolled window, and the easiest
way to set the default size is gtk_window_set_default_size() on the
*toplevel* GtkWindow (not the scrolled window). But using
gtk_window_set_geometry_hints() and providing the scrolled window as a
geometry widget you could get more elaborate. Or there's
gtk_widget_set_size_request() on the scrolled window which sets its
minimum size.
