Note that there is not version 7.01 or 7.0.1 yet  - but I assume you
mean or .beta2 (or any tag for that matter:

use ./g fetch --tags to pull in the tags, then you can use
./g checkout <tagname>, for example ./g checkout libreoffice-
or in case you're already planning to add changes on top of the tag:
create a branch at the same time.
./g checkout -b yourbranchname libreoffice-

That should depend on the locale of your OS/what the document is using
as page format.
If I create a new Writer document in German locale, I get a document
with A4 here.
