The option MeshRange will set the range:

ListPlot3D[Table[Sin[x*y] + Random[Real, {-0.15, 0.15}],
    {x, 0, (3*Pi)/2, Pi/15}, {y, 0, (3*Pi)/2, Pi/15}],
   MeshRange -> {{0, (3*Pi)/2}, {0, (3*Pi)/2}}];

The option Ticks can then be used to specify the ticks

ListPlot3D[Table[Sin[x*y] + Random[Real, {-0.15, 0.15}],
    {x, 0, (3*Pi)/2, Pi/15}, {y, 0, (3*Pi)/2, Pi/15}],
   MeshRange -> {{0, (3*Pi)/2}, {0, (3*Pi)/2}},
   Ticks ->
    {Range[0, (3*Pi)/2, Pi/4], Range[0, (3*Pi)/2, Pi/4],
