Hi, the margins must also fit the printer specifications. If you choose e.g. 2 mm for top, bottom, left or right, many printers will not be able to print that, because there is a minimum margin depending on the printer. Acrobat will then adjust the document to fit the printer (89% in your case). You can also tell Acrobat to print the page without adjusting to the printer's minimum margins, which is 100%. But then what is missing is what the printer cannot print because it is too close to the edge of the page. Under Document Properties in Acrobat you can also see the dimensions of the paper. If they differ, enter the dimensions of the paper directly in the lilypond code under \paper, if it really should not be A4.
\paper {
paper-height = 297\mm
paper-width = 210\mm

That may be the case, but as I said when I print straight from Frescobaldi the 
score doesn't fit the page (the bottom staff is mostly missing) and when I open 
it in acrobat reader it fits at 89%, so something is off about the paper size.

I don't think so. Try printing any A4 document from Acrobat or Frescobaldi and 
seeing if you get the same behavior. Pretty sure you will. Then you should 
either find the proper settings in Acrobat (I don't have it), or in 
Frescobaldi, or write a bug report to Frescobaldi. From LilyPond's point of 
view, I don't see anything wrong here.

Also, make sure your are printing to A4 paper. US letter paper is about 2cm 
less than A4 in height, so if your printer dialog is trying to fit A4 into US 
letter, that could indeed crop the bottom.
