xfsdump doesn't (really) have a maximum file size limitation. There is
a maximum file size defined in xfsdump/dump/content.c but it is set to
the largest theoretical file size, 18 million terabytes. The definition
is defined in bytes:
/* max "unsigned long long int"
#define ULONGLONG_MAX 18446744073709551615LLU
Obviously this maximum limit is impossible to hit, which is why I say
xfsdump doesn't have a max file size limit. You should be able to dump
the biggest possible file you can create.
There is, however, a command line option (-z) to set a maximum file
size for your dump. This option allows you to specify a maximum file
size, in kilobytes. Files over this size will be excluded from the dump.
