Print size, but make sure that this is what you want - if you set the
ppi value to 8 for a 8 pixel image, you do this because you want it to
be printed 1 inch high and 1 inch wide.

You can index the image to a 1-bit b/w palette, but that won't matter
much until you export. It should also be ok to just paint in black and
white and worry about that later.

Well, you are working at a level where individual pixels are relevant
(that seems to be the point of your lesson).

Sure. Check out the View and the Image menus, you can switch the grid
display and behavior there and set it up for your image.
