Probably not what you want but straightforward:

Solution 1: Scale down y by a factor of 10 (for instance) in both the 
box and quarter cylinder: scale <1, 0.1, 1>.

Solution 2: Scale up x by a factor 10 in both the box and quarter 
cylinder: scale <10, 1, 1>.

You can always resize your object afterwards.
