<mypagedML>
<?xml-stylesheet href="foo.css" media="print" ?>
 <page>
  <svg /><!-- first page svg goes here
 </page>
 <page>
  <svg /><!-- second page svg goes here
 </page>
 <!-- and so forth -->
</mypagedML>

foo.css contains the one line CSS stylesheet

page { page-break-before: always }

or, if you want to get real fancy, add a second line

page > svg {width: 100% !important; height: 100% !important }

just to ensure that all the pictures fit onto the page. Obviously you can
specify page margins, etc as usual.
