You could make it useful for anyone, even those who don't have the latest
version of unzip by using "unzip -v %s | ..." . Still better, you could make
it use the pager defined in the $PAGER environment variable by using "unzip
-v %s | $PAGER" instead of forcing people to use a specific pager.

Besides, there is no need to put that in the DIRED code. It can be easily
done by defining a viewer in lynx.cfg. In mine I have

VIEWER:application/lzh:lha -v %s | $PAGER
VIEWER:application/zip:unzip -v %s | $PAGER

and when I press return on a zip or lzh file in a local directory or in a
remote FTP directory I get the archive directory displayed through "less",
the pager I have defined in $PAGER.
