Welcome to the Affinity Forums, battleooze. :)

 

Which app are you using? I'm on Windows, so I only have the beta version of Affinity Designer, but I can set specific dimensions for a selected object via the controls on the Transform panel.

I'm supposing you are trying to make screen wallpaper. When starting a new document, select "display" for type. There's on in the drop down menu of exactly the size want. Or choose the next larger.  Also, the doc units will be set to pixels, not mm, inches, points, etc. Make a rectangle in the new document, either filling the whole work space, or smaller, and adjust via transforms as #Alfred mentions.
