Why did they make the enclosure so long [13.00”L x 6.89”W x 3.74H (33cm x 6,5cm x 9cm)], if it's only hosting a thunderbolt to eSATA controller and a DC powersupply ?

btw there's no cables in the starter kit.

You read the package size, or as they call it "Retail Box Dimensions", as in the box with everything in it all packaged up for sale. The device itself is only 6.99” x 2.57” x 3.62”.
