Not quite - we aren't limited by speed of light, but by power dissipation. One could certainly fit 100GB of RAM inside the 5cm boundary, by making a 3-dimensional structure. However, there would be no way to keep such a solid "brick" of transistors cool...
[Of course, I hope to be proved wrong in that!]
