The exact command Emacs should give to print the file is:-

pr -F filename | lpr

Check what this does at the shell and check what lpr-buffer does in
Emacs.  If it doesn't produce the right result its still probably a
print setup problem.  You may have set the paper size to letter in
your print setup where it should be A4.
