I was considering '/etc/papersize' as a possible culprit. I'm not sure
how the contents of that file (as well as the PAPERSIZE environment
variable, if it exists) articulates with CUPS' lpoptions and the default
size setting in PPD.

curty@einstein:~$ paperconf

That's what I want (reflecting the contents of /etc/papersize here).
