Both the AES key size and the RSA key size matter, because it's no use adding security beyond the weakest link. Here the weakest link is 2048-bit RSA, which is considered roughly equivalent in security to 100-128-bit symmetric keys (depending on who you ask). So having a password with much more than 100 bits of entropy would be fairly useless. In practice, ...
