Try this:

 uses Printers;

 var
   Device, Driver, Port: array[0..80] of Char;
   DevMode: THandle;
   pDevmode: PDeviceMode;
 begin
   // Get printer device name etc.
   Printer.GetPrinter(Device, Driver, Port, DevMode);
   // force reload of DEVMODE
   Printer.SetPrinter(Device, Driver, Port, 0) ;
   // get DEVMODE handle
   Printer.GetPrinter(Device, Driver, Port, DevMode);
   If Devmode <> 0 Then Begin
     // lock it to get pointer to DEVMODE record
     pDevMode := GlobalLock( Devmode );
     If pDevmode <> Nil Then
     try
       With pDevmode^ Do Begin
         // modify paper size
         dmPapersize := DMPAPER_A4;
         // tell printer driver that dmPapersize field contains
         // data it needs to inspect.
         dmFields := dmFields or DM_PAPERSIZE;
       End;
    finally
      // unlock devmode handle.
      GlobalUnlock( Devmode );
    end;
   End; { If }
 end;
