You're going to have to spell out what you're working with.

Width is easy, it's just eyeballing the report's PageSize property, and then making sure the report width + left margin + right margin is not greater than that value.

Height, same thing, report height + top margin + bottom margin.

The problem developers typically have is with tablix (height) and matrix (height and width) controls, where it will render across one page based on the data that is fed to it.  In these cases, afaik there is no 'make sure this fits on one page' property, so the best you can hope for is to make sure the data fed into these controls ensure a one-page rendering.

Hope this helps, but again you'll have to supply more than a two-line question to get a more precise answer.
