if cell in our body follows surface area to volume ratio , can we assume our universe also obey surface area to volume ratio ? That is 6:1 ratio in a cell is considered better than 6:5 bcoz if the cell grows beyond a certain limit, not enough material will be able to cross the membrane fast enough to accommodate the increased cellular volume. When this happens, the cell must divide into smaller cells with favorable surface area/volume ratios, or cease to function.

That is why cells are so small. That means if universe is cuboidal in shape , a cube of unit length of 1 unit is better than that of 5 units ?

Except for the fact that your units are arbitrary. This means we could set another unit, suppose unitb, that is equal to 5 units. This means we have a cube of length 1 unitb. The argument seems flawed.
