Good question. :)
The way the box bag is made you must have the zipper a bit bigger than the length of the bag to make the assembly process work. You do trim the excess zipper which is why you need a nylon zipper.
I buy all my zippers at quilt shops and they only sell 14" zippers. They cost around $1.30 each. The zippers that you find at the big fabric/craft stores cost double that for a smaller size and are not as good a quality.
Yes, you can buy different sized zippers if you would like. A 14" zipper is what you need for the large bag. For the medium bag dont go smaller than a 12" and for the small bag use a 9". But, it does make sewing the smaller bags less cumbersome when you use the larger zipper.
I appreciate your question and hope this helped. Let me know if you have other questions.
Natalie :)

Why would you need 4 14 inch zippers for bags that are only 9 inches to 5 inches long?

I adore the fabric on these sweet bags. I can't wait to either get my sewing machine fixed (right) or get a new one (that's the right answer!!) so I can start back with sewing again. These bags are a real inspiration to get started again!! Lovely!!
