As said on <>,
this depends on the configuration. But the fact that the dvi file
doesn't contain papersize hints is a bug. As said in the xdvi man page:

  -paper papertype
     (.paper)  Specifies  the  size of the printed page. Note that in
     most cases it's best to specify the paper size in the TeX  input
     file via the line


     which  will  be  recognized by both dvips and xdvi; in that case
     the use of a `-paper' option should be unneccessary.
