Check your nearest /var/log/cups/page_log file.

In there, you'll find lines with 7 fields.  The 5th field
tells you the number of pages printed and the 6th field
tells you the number of copies made.

The line above shows 2 pages printed, 1 copy.

btw, I got this info from the manual... :)

Hope that helps!
