And from groff_tmac(5):

   Special Packages

              This macro file is already loaded at start-up by troff
              so it isn't necessary to call it explicitly.  It
              provides an interface to set the paper size on the
              command line with the option -dpaper=size.  Possible
              values for size are the same as the predefined papersize
              values in the DESC file (only lowercase; see
              groff_font(5) for more) 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:

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