   The PrintTranscoder has a 'SCALE_TO_PAGE' Hint
that I believe turns off this scaling.  You can also
set the Print Margins through hints.

   Actually, I thought the print dialogs had a way that you
could specify the print margins yourself.

    So this is trickier since we use the JDK provided print dialogs.
There is probably a way to add such a checkbox but I don't know what
it is.  The other option would be for us to add a third(!) print dialog
just to present such options...

    Another option would be to use the PrintTranscoder directly,
where you can set the above hints on the command line.
