Most PDF viewers allow to scale document to fit paper size. So, you save to PDF, open with some PDF viewer (Adobe Reader definitely works), and print it from there with scaling to paper size in print options.

Also drivers of some printers allows the same, just examine your print dalogue. It may say something related to "scale to paper size". Then set "input size" to "paper size" of your document, "output size" to real paper size, and switch on scaling.
