If you aim for the longest word use pxe- and -sing.
pxezazampxevozampxezampxevosing.

Notably, "mrr-" and "tsì-" work as well, and "mrr-" will create the largest word that is the largest number of those words.

Numbers are sort of cheating though, because they could be split down in a similar way to English numbers so pxezazampxevozampxezampxevosing would be pxezazam pxevozam pxezam pxevosing which is also a lot easier to read so I tend to do that anyway.

Excluding numbers I reckon "'awsteykìlyevengyängem" has to be closej (I'm taking a punt of ìlyev, depending on how Frommer decides pre-first infixes work together (and if participles can have other infixes as well) you might be able to add <awn> in as well).

...and how about the longest word without any affixes or infixes of any sort?  'Cuz those look a bit like cheating, too.  Plus, they're not listed as seperate words in the dictionary (with a few exceptions).

Do we yet know the specifics of how compound words work in Na'vi? Maybe it's like Swedish, where there is no upper limit for how long compound words can be :D
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.
