If you use a literal result element:

<root pageSizeUnits="{@pageSizeUnits}"
dayBreakPosition="{@dayBreakPosition}">

or

<root>
  <xsl:copy-of select="@pageSizeUnits|@dayBreakPosition"/>

then the namespaces in scope for the <root> element in the stylesheet are
copied into the result tree. 

If you use <xsl:element name="root"> they are not.

It's difficult to create explicit namespace nodes when you use <xsl:element>
in XSLT 1.0. It's easier in 2.0, because there is an <xsl:namespace>
instruction for the purpose.
