A4 is 21 cm width. Using 8" width by 11" height as the virtual page would
be printable on most common paper sizes.

Making the PS files scalable would also allow to print booklets with
pstools. I know the sgml-tools can make such a file and I made some
booklets on A5 by printing the proper pages on the proper spot but that is
something that the pstools can take care off.
