// create a print dialog which will be initilaised with default printer
PrintDialog pd = new PrintDialog();
// get the printer settings and get the papersizes
// iterate throught the available paper sizes and add them to your combobox
foreach(PaperSize p in pd.PrinterSettings.PaperSizes){
      comboBox1.Items.Add(p.PaperName);
}
