(add-hook 'doc-view-mode-hook (lambda () (doc-view-goto-page 10)))

will open *every* PDF file at page 10 (not sure what happens if
there is no page 10), but I presume you will want to make it
interactive. So you can write a function that asks for the page
number, and adds something like this to the doc-view-mode-hook,
after cleaning up any previous such setting. Then add it as a -before
advice to find-file.

I tested the hook setting but not the rest of it: caveat emptor.
