See TeXbook p. 118f.

Does the following fit your needs?

·································································

\newdimen\myborderoffset \myborderoffset=1cm

\definelayout[mypage][page]
\setuplayout [mypage][
backspace=\myborderoffset,
topspace=\myborderoffset,
]

\setuplayout[mypage]

\showframe

\def\docowpage{%
\rotate[rotation=90]{\externalfigure[cow][width=\vsize,height=\hsize]}\page%
}

\starttext

\dorecurse{5}{\docowpage}
\stoptext

·································································

Regards, Philipp
