The standard exportPdf plugin handles multi-page blocks but only for 
tables of query results (ie results returned by the query tool). If you 
need to have your own-designed block displayed on several pages, you 'll 
have to extend the plugin and write some PHP code (especially by 
extending the  plugins/exportPdf/client/CwFpdf.php that deals with FPDF

I don't know if it is related to your question but the PDF scale is 
supposed to be the same than the one of the map you want to print. Since 
  the PDF map dimensions are in most cases different from the initial 
ones, the extent is different.
Is your PDF scale correct?
