Can I change the default value for the number of media items that are displayed?

Yes, if you want to set a different default value for all users in your theme functions.php you can use:

add_filter('cp_mediapicker_limit', 'my_mediapicker_limit');
function my_mediapicker_limit () {
    return 20; // set your own number of items

For individual users you can add the User ID to the filter name. In this example
we will change the default value for User with User ID = 3.

add_filter('cp_mediapicker_limit_3', 'my_mediapicker_limit');
function my_mediapicker_limit () {
    return 40; // set your own number of items
