That's what I did too, to get the default right.

Of course you can change paperlength on the fly with .pl (available
in read-only register .p in machine units):

  .pl 10i
  The page length \fB\en[.p]\fP is \n[.p] units

Along with the usual line-length and page-offset commands, you can set
up any paper-size you want for a given job.
