You may have trouble with this.  Reports are based on printer capabilities.  You cannot force a "normal page size" printer to print on paper larger than it can handle.

Therefore, I suggest you create the report - force it to a specific printer.

You can check to see if the specific printer is available per the PC, and you can check to see if the specific report exists, but you'll find much issues with trying to do this "on the fly".

At least per my knowledge.....
