Did you try Rev's dictionary?

Open it and type "print", and it'll filter the tokens to those that 
begin with that word.  Among other interesting properties you'll find 
the printPaperOrientation property, which takes these values:

   - portrait: rotated 0 degrees.
   - landscape: rotated 90 degrees clockwise.
   - reverse portrait: rotated 180 degrees clockwise.
   - reverse landscape: 270 degrees clockwise.
