Use the XY arrangement method and set the number of columns with the 
nx-key of \setuppaper.


\definepapersize [A4/3] [width=99mm,height=210mm]

\setuppapersize [A4/3] [A4,landscape]

\setuppaper [nx=3,ny=1]

\setuparranging [XY]

\setupbodyfont [10pt]

\showframe[page]

\starttext
\dorecurse{10}{\samplefile{tufte}}
\stoptext
