.. if I were me - and if me was a 240 lb. weaver ..
I'd make the tenon about 10 inches - so I could
anchor it into the floor. :-)
I'm curious about the design of the seat -
- is it based on a traditional one ?
- is the adjustability important for a given weaver ?
or is that for marketing to different people at different looms ?

I don't know if it's traditional but the manufacturer is well known in the
business. The ability to adjust the height is for a number of different peo
ple using different looms. The strength of that joint troubles me as well.
I wish I had gone 5/4 rather than 4/4 on the hard maple. The thickness is 7
/8 after running the pieces through the thickness planer.
You have some latitude, depending upon width, but personally I'd go for
around 2 1/2 -3", with a wide tenon.
Even a tad shorter, and, IME and done properly, they'll have more
racking strength than you might think.
Here's a similar application on a trestle table I built, and, as you can
see, they're not all that long, roughly 2 1/2" ... over ten years of
heavy use and moving around (the top weighs in at 106 lbs) with no
structural problem whatsoever:
