When you use the mentioned size of an a4 pdf file it will make a pdf file in the this size: 209.9 x 297 mm. If you want to create a real a4 sized pdf you can use the following:
PDF_begin_page($pdf, 595.3, 842);
It´s a small step i know... but it´s just the last mm.

Try this...
<?
function mm2pt($val){
return floatval($val * 2.835016835017);
}
$xpdf = pdf_new();
pdf_open_file($xpdf);
pdf_begin_page($xpdf, mm2pt(210), mm2pt(297));
// ...
?>

The problem is that A4 is *NOT* exactly 210mm*297mm.
(Further more, the 2.835016835017 is incorrect. You convert from mm to pps by dividing by 25.4 and multiplying by 72. Hence the ratio is 2.83464566929133858267).
The code that I posted in may produces correct sizes.
(Except for the "m65" format, sorry. "m65" is the same as "dl", and should return the same values).

Points for CD covers (approximate values)
Front cover           (119x119mm)   => 337.33x337.33 points
Inlay including sides (150x117mm)   => 425.21x331.66 points
Inlay excluding sides (137.4x117mm) => 389.49x331.66 points

I spent a lot of hours tweaking numbers in my PDF source, trying to nudge things the right way, and, invariably, really messing up big-time...
Then one day I realized that all these numbers were supposed to be (INCHES * 72).
Now my PDF code looks more like:
<?php
.
.
.
 pdf_begin_page($pdf, 8.5 * 72, 11 * 72);
.
.  /* set up $helvetica as font */
.
 pdf_set_font($pdf, $helvetica, 9);
 $leading = pdf_get_value($pdf, 'leading');
 pdf_show_boxed($pdf, 0.5 * 72, 0.5 * 72, 4.0 * 72, $leading, 'left', '');
?>
0.0, 0.0 is at the bottom left.
8.5 * 72, 11 * 72 is at the top right.
Everything in between is in x.xx * 72 where x.xx is INCHES.
Suddenly, I can visualize the PDF while I'm typing.
Might work for you too.
