well the maximum diameter of the fireball is according to the german Wikipedia calculated by: 150*(yield in kt)^0.39 This should give you the maximum fireball diameter in meters. However it seems to overestimate the diameter for high yields. It gave a result of 10 km for the Tsar Bomba while it had only about 6km diameter.
