Probably. I would be surprised if you couldn't do what you need. you 
would need the proper backend and stylesheet. I don't know enough 
docbook to say for certain.

dblatex is a Docbook backend that converts docbook to latex. I suppose 
that you could set the paper size in docbook, convert to latex, and  set 
the quarto paper size in latex to get the proper orientations.
