Can we change the position into 'jak velké je to?'

Why is "how is it big?" Wrong?

That is a literal translation that is very strange. In English, "How is it big?" would be asking by what means/mechanism something is big, and I don't know if that fits the Czech sentence. Literal translations sometimes work. But here... maybe not so much.
