Neither okular nor cups needs a restart. After the command above,

  lpoptions -p Samsung_C410_Series -l

should show Letter as the default PageSize.

BTW, it is possible to alter $HOME/.cups/lpoptions from within okular.
File/Print/Name/Properties/Advanced. Highlight Page Size and double-
click at the right side of the highlighted portion.

Perhaps you have encountered the bug in Qt that Curt pointed to.
