No, actually that is just used to compute the image size - the
image data itself is rotated by the scaling code, so the cupsWidth
and cupsHeight in the output data will be the portrait orientation.

The only time we override the width and height is when printing
using a custom size, in which case the custom size sets the maximum
size for the print and the image filter computes the "ideal" size.
