>From NEWS:

o troff's start-up file `troffrc' now includes `papersize.tmac' to set
  the paper size with the command line option `-dpaper=<size>'.

  Possible values for `<size>' are the same as the predefined
  `papersize' values in the DESC file (only lowercase; see the
  groff_font man page) except a7-d7.  An appended `l' (ell) character
  denotes landscape orientation.  Examples: `a4', `c3l', `letterl'.

  Most output drivers need additional command line switches `-p' and
  `-l' to override the default paper length and orientation as set in
  the driver specific DESC file.

  For example, use the following for PS output on A4 paper in
  landscape orientation:

    groff -Tps -dpaper=a4l -P-pa4 -P-l -ms >
