You need to go to the canvas format and uncheck. You may not be able to size exactly to your needs and will have to use a resizing program  . Depending on your needs you may need to have the file made into a vectored file.

Even with the setting of 3300 x 3300 your image will only export at a size of 2880 x 2880---- at a 300 dpi output that limits the max size to 9.6 inches square.

For 300 dpi output  every 300 in canvas size will print at one inch at a resolution of 300 PPI.

Nww if you stick with being ok with a 72 dpi (which will look ok printed) you can go as large as 38.4 inches square.   Most commercial printers will balk at processing such a low res image--- which is why I always say every 300 in canvas size will print at 1 inch at 300 ppi.  a canvas 1800 x 1800 will print at 6 inches square at 300 ppi for example.
