need a tool that understands proper PDF coordinates for cropping

The PDF format takes the bottom left corner of a document to be the origin (0,0). This makes it difficult to get coordinates for cropping because Ghostscript's /CropBox command uses this coordinate system. Consequently, the display command cannot easily be used to get coordinates.

Is there a graphical tool that will directly give the /CropBox coordinates for a selected region?

BTW, coordinates from the display command cannot be translated either, because it finds a different page area geometry than the pdfinfo command.
