The setting comes from a package specifically designed for this, I think:
libpaper. On debian, it asks, but on ubuntu, it may choose the most common,
which is A4. It should probably set it based on your locale, but I think
I've seen arguments against that too. Anyway, look in synaptic, under
packages with debconf, and you should be able to reconfigure libpaper.
