Like it says. Normally set up a flying wedge. 3m by 3m does for me.but what size is a good idea for 2?

For what use ? To bivvi under ? 3m X 3m sounds plenty if you rig as a standard ridge setup...

I use a 1.5m X 2.1m for one person to bivvi under

A 3x3 tarp can be pitched like a tent as per this video - imho, it's deceptively roomy and could easily fit two.  I've only tried it solo in the garden  ;D

As quixoticgeek says, shirley 3x3 as a standard ridge is big enough?
