It's actually not part of any app, it's part of KWin.  First size the window 
to your liking.  Then right-click on the window's top bar (to the left of the 
Min, Max & Close buttons).  Choose Advanced --> Special Window Settings.  On 
the 'Geometry' tab in the pop-up window, click on 'Size' and then 'Remember' 
from the drop-down menu next to it.  That will remember the size of the window 
every time that any konsole session opens.  There is a whole slew of options 
in that dialog box, but the window size is the only thing that I use 
regularly.  This works for anything that KWin opens, which really is 
everything, it is very useful for little option windows that you want to keep 
bigger than default or for making things open on the right side of the screen,
