Sets page width.
The function changes the width of the currently open page if any, or the default width for newly created pages. This function changes the media box of a page (see also DynaPDF.SetBBox). The page width must be greater zero. You can change the page of current page or outside a page the size of new pages.
10cm is about 283 points, unless you changed units (DynaPDF.SetUserUnit). Calculate with cm value divided by 2.54 cm/inch and multiplied with 72 points per inch.
