Thanks for reading the docs, this is the right option.

That's one of the reasons why I wrote zwpagelayout.sty. It was tested
with latex+dvips -t unknown, with pdflatex and with xelatex. It can be
used together with hyperref but you should not use the papersize
option with hyperref. It's not yet fully PDF/X enabled, I will
implement other options whenever I have more time.
