I don't know about KDE but it works for me on my
openSUSE 10.2 out-of-the-box system (i.e. no KDE updates)
to print a file via /opt/kde3/bin/cupsdoprint with exact
your parameters (except that I use my queue name):

cupsdoprint -P 'lj1220ps' -J 'http://www.opensuse.org/' \
-H '/var/run/cups/cups.sock:631' -U 'sglasoe' \
-o ' copies=1 \
multiple-document-handling=separate-documents-collated-copies \
orientation-requested=3' \
/usr/share/YaST2/data/printer/testpg.ps

but for example

cat /usr/share/YaST2/data/printer/testpg.ps | cupsdoprint -P 'lj1220ps'

results

"This utility doesn't support printing from STDIN"
