If you were to look into Scribus 1.3.x code, you will see the ISO standard
formula for calculating the page sizes which I put in there very early on in
1.3.x to resolve non exact ISO page sizes in 1.2.x.. hence, we now have
A4=210x297mm in the file new box.. and as a test i just exported to PDF and
surprise surprise I got 210x297mm too. void PageSize::generatePageSizeList()
has the calculations.
