That's a standard distance. Unless you use a 3rd party cropping tool I dont believe you can change the standard crop mark distance in Illustrator.

You can place crop marks directly on the artwork or in the separations.  By changing the bounding box in your artwork you can change the distance the crops are to the artwork. ie. the bounding box doesn't have to be a printing piece of artwork and can be any size placed anywhere - so give it a size and position to where if you added three points it will be in the position you want it.

The crop marks will still point to the corner of the bounding box, and not the edges of the artwork though.

It does require two bounding boxes. The first will be an extension top and bottom of the existing bounding area. Filter - Create - Trim Marks. Delete the side marks. Then extend the sides of the bounding boxes equally and then delete the uneeded top marks. Awkward? Time consuming? but a workaround. Of course you can just move the original marks. I always have templates with crops, registration, colour squares and docket numbers for commonly used sizes.
