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.
