You can set ANT_OPTS in Tools > Configure Output on the Advanced tab (see attached screen capture).
The default setting for XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 was ANT_OPTS = "-Xmx256m"
The default setting for XMetaL Author Enterprise 7.0 is ANT_OPTS = "-Xmx512m"

JAVA_OPTS should not be needed in 7.0 as all of the “deliverables” now use ANT to generate output (in previous versions some used JAVA and some used ANT).
