even cheaper solution...

You can obtain the same functionality using the donationware Spark shortcut tool.

Just add a shortcut for Pages that triggers the following Applescript:
activate application "Pages"
tell application "System Events"
   try
      tell process "Pages"
         repeat with thewin in windows
            if subrole of thewin is "AXStandardWindow" then
               click button 1 of scroll area 1 of splitter group 1 of thewin
               exit repeat
            end if
          end repeat
      end tell
   end try
end tell
this is the code for page down, replace button 1 with button 2 for page up.
The strange repeat loop is needed because applescript detects also floating windows, and they are detected before regolar ones; so, as we cannot know how may palettes (inspector, font, colors, etc.) are open, the script browses all the windows till it finds the first one that is a regular one (it will be the frontmost open document).
Hope this helps.
