Parth  et al; 
the folks at Netflix seem to have built a solution for your problem. The Netflix Tech Blog:

May want to chase Jeff Magnuson & check if the solution is open sourced.   Pl.   report
back to this forum if you get an answer to the problem.

1. Is there a way to configure the size of sstables created after compaction?

No, won'tfix :
You could use the "sstablesplit" utility on your One Big SSTable to split it into files of
your preferred size. 
2. Is there a better approach to generate the report?

The major compaction isn't too bad, but something that understands SSTables as an input format
would be preferable to sstable2json. 
3. What are the flaws with this approach?

sstable2json is slow and transforms your data to JSON.
