If a man has big hips mean that he has klinefelter syndrome (xxy) ?

No: Large hips are not part if this disorder. Many with klinefelter's can develop breast tissue because of low testosterone levels from testicular failure, but this is treatable by giving testosterone to those with this disorder. Other symptoms may include tall stature and learning disabilities. Some also have behavior problems.
