    Google is your friend:
    A4 = 210 x 297 mm (8.3 x 11.7 in)

    It's almost the same as silly "US Letter" (215.9 x 279.4 mm, 8.5 x 11.0 in) ... A4 is slightly less wide, but slightly taller.

    The A and B series of paper sizes are a standard that makes sizing things easy, unlike 'US Letter" which is a weird unique size most of the world doesn't use (despite what desktop printer makers seem think with their software default settings).

    So what US frame do I use to make it fit, do I get a matte to cover corners or something?

    If you're making a frame, then you can just cut a piece of A4 paper to use as a size template.

    Yeah, A4 always gives me trouble, as it sticks out above the top of my binder pages. You would want to custom cut a matte, cover some of the excess image that is larger than normal US paper, or, if need be, trim some of the photo off to make it a more standard size in the US.
