Does anyone know how to configure the x-terminal-emulator so that I can increase the buffer/scroll back size of the window in ubuntu ?

x-terminal-emulator is just a wrapper. On my version of Ubuntu, it in fact runs gnome-terminal, which could be configured via "Edit" -> "Profile Preferences" -> "Scrolling".
