The page size is set in the output file - for PDF output, and also for
DVI output, provided your DVI viewing program recognizes the page size
directive (since 2017-03-05). Thus there shouldn't be anything extra
you need to do to see what the page looks like.

If I disable changing the papersize in \internalpapersizes, like this:

Index: texinfo.tex
--- texinfo.tex (revision 8191)
+++ texinfo.tex (working copy)
@@ -11328,7 +11328,7 @@
     \pdfvorigin = 1 true in
-      \special{papersize=#8,#7}%
+      %\special{papersize=#8,#7}%
       \pdfpageheight #7\relax
       \pdfpagewidth #8\relax

and use @smallbook and @cropmarks, the lower cropmarks are indeed
visible. They were invisible before because they had disappeared off
the bottom of the page - probably they are being printed too far down.
