Some of the EPSON models support hardware paper size detection.  You'd
want at least an option to toggle whether or not you want to use it.

As for "standard" paper sizes, there are many and sometimes sizes
differ depending on your source.  Suggest using an existing paper size
library if possible.  Debian has libpaper.

Hope this helps,
