The feature implementation has quite a low priority. You know, the main purpose of PD4ML is PDF output. Normally we add new features to RTF module when there is no urgent PDF issues. I have my doubts if we’ll have a chance to start the implementation till May.
If you need the feature urgently you may fund its implementation. In the case please contact us by email.

That means you get HTML layout of requested width (htmlWidth parameter) mapped to chosen paper format. An actual transformation from dimensions given in screen pixels or in physical units to resulting dimensions on paper is not always obvious.
pd4ml.protectPhysicalUnitDimensions() API call should make dimensions/sizes given in pt, in, cm keept intact.
There some are other support topics address the issue. I.e.
