I can not manage it with sed only, but this works as well, using awk instead:

.  sy pdfinfo @$1 | \
awk '/Page size/ {print ".nr pdf-wid \\(p;" $3 "\\)\\ pdf-ht  \\(p;" $5i 
"\\)\\n"}' \
> /tmp/pdfpic\n[$$]

It depends on pdfinfo putting the numbers at pos $3 and $5

If you don't like to change pdfpic.tmac I could make a small script "genpdf" 
which calls convert and removes all \n : sed 's/\0//g'
