Welcome to the forum!


1) In model space, draw your square at actual size.


2) In paper space, create a viewport at 1=1 scale.


3) Plot the layout at 1=1 scale.

Mspace units = mm.

Pspace units =mm.

Select A4 as paper size.

plot & viewport scale = 1:1

If your plotter is accurate, the drawing will be.

The scale is full size, unles there is a typo in your post.
