I found this...

First, close all instances of Google Chrome. There should be no instances of chrome.exe running in the Windows Task Manager. Then
Go to C:\Users\<user ID>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\.
Open the file "Preferences" in a text editor like Notepad.
First, resave the file to something like "Preference - Old" without any extension (i.e. no .txt). This will serve as a backup, should something go wrong.
Look for a section called "browser." Inside that section, you should find a subsection called window_placement. Under window_placement you will see things like "bottom", "left", "right", etc. with numbers after them.
You will need to play around with these numbers to get your desired window size and placement. When finished, save this file with the name "Preferences" again with no extension. This will overwrite the existing Preferences file. Open Chrome and see how you did. If you're not satisfied with the size and placement, close Chrome and change the numbers in the Preferences file until you get what you want.

I gave it a quick test and it seemed to do what you are asking for.
