That's not possible, at least not directly. You will need to extract each page as its own file to examine that, and even then it won't mean that the sum of these files will match the size of the combined file.

The sum of the weight of the pages will necessarily be greater than the weight of the original document because certain elements such as embedded fonts, headers, footers and all repetitive elements are only stored once in the document.
When the document is split, each page must incorporate all these elements.

Each page in a PDF file has multiple boxes that define its size, but the most common one is the Crop box. To list the width of all of these boxes in your file you can run this code:

 

for (var p=0; p<this.numPages; p++) {
	var pageBox = this.getPageBox("Crop", p);
	var pageWidth = pageBox[2]-pageBox[0];
	console.println("Page " + (p+1) + " Width:" + pageWidth);
}

 

Note that the output is in PostScript Points. You can divide it by 72 to get inches, for example.
