Too small, even pdfTeX has much problems with this:

\pdfdecimaldigits=3D100
\pdfpagewidth=3D1sp
\pdfpageheight=3D1sp
\null
\nopagenumbers
\bye

=3D=3D> /MediaBox [0 0 0 0]

\pdfcompresslevel=3D0
\pdfdecimaldigits=3D100
\setbox0=3D\hbox{}
\wd0=3D1sp
\ht0=3D1sp
\dp0=3D0pt
\pdfxform0
\pdfrefxform\pdflastxform
\nopagenumbers
\bye

=3D=3D> /BBox [0 0 0 0]

...
\wd0=3D1pt
\ht0=3D1bp
...

Hans Hagen has meantioned some AR bugs with zero values,
therefore I would suggest 1bp, because then the output
is small.
