If I recall right it's because of the ratio of a cell's surface area to it's volume. A cell needs to export waste and import nutrients & food through the cellular membrane. It has to maintain a high ratio of surface area:volume for efficient material transport. If the cell grows, its volume outpaces the surface area.
