Heres how I see it.
Actually, Kalimdor and EK are on opposite sides of the Azerothian Globe with Northrend being the North Pole and Pandaria (thus far) representing a south-ish pole continent.
Between the globes we've seen and Wrathion's fun little slideshow, what we see is what we get, and there's not much room left for anything new.
BUT... we all know how these things go, don't we?
I suppose they could scrunch Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms a bit closer together, which would then open up some space on the then-empty 1/3 of the plant for a new continent.
Pandaria isn't frozen like Northrend, so it's plainly not close to the south pole. There could still be an "antarctic" landmass below it giving us a south polar region.
BY THE WAY--
Azeroth is a teeny-tiny little planet, probably smaller than our own moon. If you use any of those add-ons which tell you the distance to your quest target, you could do the math, I suppose, and see that it is a freakishly small world.
It's entirely possible that it's really bigger than what we think, with plenty of room for new stuff, and the maps are based only on what we already know. If they used that reasoning, Blizz could continue to give us new lands to explore for quite awhile before it just got ridiculous.

Azeroth is a teeny-tiny little planet, probably smaller than our own moon. If you use any of those add-ons which tell you the distance to your quest target, you could do the math, I suppose, and see that it is a freakishly small world.It's massively downscaled so that it doesn't take the modelers several years to make a continent. In lore, it takes weeks to cross the Barrens, but we can do it in a few minutes.
No one knows. It's like the Atlantic Ocean until Christopher Columbus decided to travel it. Or until the Vikings decided to travel it (until they had their asses handed to them by native americans and ran back to Iceland like a bunch of babies).
Size comparison of game worlds:
Keeping in mind the extra continents added since the picture was taken, Azeroth may have around 100-120 square miles of surface area.
Less area than the tiny island of Grenada :p

Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
