In the Acrobat IAC documentation(Reference) there is a method for getting
the size (Height/Width) of a Page.

AcroExch.PDPage.GetSize is the method name used to extract this information,
the information will need to be converted to Inches/CM from the Acrobat
Points Coordinate system. Page 61 of the IAC Overview explain the Point
system and also what it's worth in Inches etc.

Have a browse through the IAC section on CodeCuts (
for some ideas on how to cycle through pages in a PDF.
