It's simple. The Daedalus-class was meant to be roughly half the size of the Constitution-class (since the Constitution-class was roughly half the size of the Galaxy-class, there was a certain logic to the Daedalus-class being a very small ship).

That was too small for the NX-class to be, though, so it wound up being only marginally smaller than the Constitution-class. Volume-wise, however, NX-01 is a substantially smaller ship than NCC-1701, and that's probably what was considered more important...
