One of the special abilities you can give an intelligent item is the ability to fly:

Item can fly, as per the spell, at a speed of 30 feet

I've always assumed that intelligent items have no Dexterity, Strength and Constitution scores. However a strength score determines your carrying capacity, so how much can it carry?

All creatures can carry a certain weight (light load) according to their strenght score. The weight they can carry explicitly excludes theyr own weight and a dress, so even with no str the sword can move and fly (but it can't carry anything more than a dress).

Dexterity means the sword does not move. It has no moving parts, it is rigid. But it can still move around, just as anyone with a flight speed given by some magic that does not involve wings can.
