You should set the correct papersize so that it is inserted in the PS
file, otherwise ps2pdf takes the default which is "letter". The best
way is to include \special{papersize=width,height} in the preamble of
your document or just below \begin{document}. If the class properly
defines all dimensions, you can use \the\paperwidth and
\the\paperheight as the dimensions. Another possibility is to use -T
dimensions when running dvips.
