I have never tried it, since I don't have GigE interfaces in my 
m0n0wall, but it should be possible by manually editing the config.xml. 
Here is an example if you clamp it to 1492:

<wan>
            <if>dc0</if>
            <mtu>1492</mtu>
            <media/>
            <mediaopt/>
            <spoofmac/>
            <blockpriv/>
            <ipaddr>dhcp</ipaddr>
            <dhcphostname/>
        </wan>

Try changing it to 9000 manually and see how it goes, but make sure the path after it actually
supports it, see here:
