You have to do the math to work out the right sizes, or else get
mencoder to do it for you with fancy use of the automatic options for
scale. Try:

-vf scale=480:340,expand=480:480

Actually you should fudge the vertical scale slightly so that black
borders end up _exactly_ at multiple-of-16 boundaries (in this case,
scale to height 336 instead of 340) to maximize quality, but the above
commandline will at least work.
