If you want to control the shape of the bounding box in three-dimensional 

graphics you should use the BoxRatios option.  The default setting for
ScatterPlot3D is the same as for Graphics3D which is 

BoxRatios -> Automatic which means that the same scale is to be used in
x, y and z.   If you want your box to have a particular shape you should
set it as something like BoxRatios -> {1,1,1} which will give a cube
or BoxRatios -> {1,1,2} which will give a box which is square in the
x and y directions and a z-direction which is twice that of either
of the x or y directions.
