Using oblong enameled cast iron on smoothtop range

Apologies in advance for yet ANOTHER kitchen remodel-related question!

I have an oblong enameled cast iron Staub cocotte (my first piece of ECI, so we share a special bond). Its dimensions are ~12 inches (major axis) and 9.5 inches (minor axis). What sort of burner size would I use for this? I typically employ this for braises that finish in the oven (first seared on the stovetop), but it does sometimes get used for stovetop soups, vegetable dishes, etc. I'm curious, because some time in the next 8-8 weeks, I'd like to make my initial appliance decisions. Thus, I'm gathering my data and information.
