Blades cannot be too long or too wide if you want to maximize ceiling fan airflow.
The length of the estimated area 1000 mm corresponds to the blade's length, thus the modeled airflow does not get through the blade's wings, and the calculation results should correspond the parameters of 1000 mm length blade in the real environment.
