You're changing the wrong values.
What you have to change are the backspace, topspace, header and footer
Can you also use the predefined page layout which sets all values to 0pt
and uses all available space, to get margin increase the backspace and
Another even short setup is when you use the predefined tight layout
which has a default value of 5mm for all margins.
