Well it is up to you. Which areas did you make decisions and what were your reasoning. Make sure you answer the questions they want you to answer in your design.txt. Meaning did you chose RMI or Sockets, Why?
Mine was 5 pages, but it could have easily had been about 2 or 3 pages. It is up to you. When you feel you have completely argued all your cases then that should be good enough.
