No, this fitting is being done on your behalf by IE. Its not in the
SVG spec that this should happen.

I assume that you are printing to a device with paper large enough to
accommodate the desired printout (or did you want it to be split into
pages for later assembly) and that you do not have 'shrink to fit'
checked in your print driver settings.

Ok so that should print at 9.25 by 29.25etc inches. Assuming you have
a device that can do that, such as a continuous feed printer or a
long landscape paper feeder.
