What you need is not covered by the XSL-FO 1.1 Recommendation. There are
talks about introducing such a feature in XSL-FO 2.0. Have a look there:
Don’t expect it to be implemented in FOP any time soon, though.

If your table fits on one page in the block progression direction; that
is, if your table is very wide but not very high, then you can probably
hand-code something. Compute how many columns fit on one page, and split
the table column-wise accordingly, into as many smaller tables as
necessary that you would put each on its own page, using forced breaks
if necessary.
