What I'm seeing here (in TeXShop on Mac OS X, with A4 paper as  
default, and the TeXLive-2007 MacTeX distribution) is quite different:

- With pdfLaTeX (and removing the [dvipdfm] option), landscape pages  
with no page numbers.

- With XeLaTeX (and either xdv2pdf or xdvipdfmx), portrait pages with  
(correct) page numbers.

If I remove the [dvipdfm] option to both hyperref and geometry  
packages, I get with XeLaTeX exactly the same output as with pdfLaTeX  
(landscape pages, no page numbers).

I don't know what's your setup, but I think that, given the now  
effective integration of XeTeX within TeX Live, with a recent TeX  
Live distribution your shouldn't have any option to specify yourself:  
configuration files have been included (such as graphics.cfg,  
color.cfg, geometry.cfg, crop.cfg, hyperref.cfg) so that XeLaTeX  
picks automatically upon running the appropriate driver definition
