Did you restart GNU Emacs after that change in your init file?

You can also position the text cursor inside the symbol (or text) 
"ps-paper-type" and type C-h v. A *Help* buffer will open explaining that the 
symbol is a variable for a special purpose and has a value, nil or something 
else. This buffer will also offer to customise the variable's value. This 
customisation interface also offers to set the new value for the current 
session or to save it for the future, i.e., record it in your init file.

Having done the latter, you can erase your own Emacs Lisp statement… Using the 
"official" customisation interface is much more reliable – and you have your 
customisations put together in a single block (or two).

Did you set the paper size correctly in System Preferences? Have you tried to 
"read" the PS output from GNU Emacs? While the print command from the File menu 
is for example ps-print-buffer-faces, which produces in the background the PS 
file and forwards it to your OS's printing system, the command 
ps-spool-buffer-faces ("print" substituted with "spool") will insert the PS 
text into a buffer called *PostScript*. Here you can easily check whether the 
correct values are used. (You can also save this buffer to a file and view that 
PS file in some PS viewer.)
