Use LaTeX or ConTeXt and you can set the papersize in the document.

- International standard paper sizes http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-paper.html
  "The United States, Canada, and in part Mexico, are today the
  only industrialized nations in which the ISO standard paper
  sizes are not yet widely used."
  "If you purchase new office or printing equipment in North
  America, it might be wise to pay attention whether the
  equipment is suitable for use with A4 paper. When you make
  inquiries, best indicate to vendors that ISO 216 compatibility
  of equipment is of concern to you."
  "Although it is rarely advertised, ISO A4 laser printer and
  copying paper, as well as suitable files and folders, are
  available today from many U.S. office supply companies."
