Use the "Virtual" directive to force a virtual screen size.
Virtual <xdim> <ydim>
$ man XF86Config
Virtual xdim ydim
This optional entry specifies the virtual screen resolution
to be used. xdim must be a multiple of either 8 or 16 for
most drivers, and a multiple of 32 when running in
monochrome mode. The given value will be rounded down if
this is not the case. Video modes which are too large for
the specified virtual size will be rejected. If this entry
is not present, the virtual screen resolution will be set
to accommodate all the valid video modes given in the Modes
entry. Some drivers/hardware combinations do not support
virtual screens. Refer to the appropriate driver-specific
documentation for details.
