I'm afraid I can't understand your explanation.  But that's in part 
because I don't understand the problem...

Does -l2 give (say) two landscape-oriented A5 size images top to bottom 
on a portrait-oriented A4 page?  I -think- that is what you are saying.

I'd probably call that 1wx2h, but "two A5 landscape on one A5 portrait" 
would probably be clearer.  A colleague suggests "two landscape 
previews on portrait paper".  Both those options are a bit long,
