I can't comment on the rest of your questions, but 11x 17 at 200dpi (at 1 bit)
comes to 0.935 MiB exactly, and with overheads, would be under 1MB. I don't
remember the details of the worse case scenario for G4, but I think it is
possibly adding 1/8 on top. Any "normal" work load never get anywhere near the
worst-case compression scenario. e.g. if you have 1/8 of areas as white
borders, which compresses very well, would compensate for the rest of the page
being white-noise.
