your command line sets Java Virtual Machine property PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES.
Which obviously has no effect on XEP.

To get the effect you need, you can either set JVM option com.renderx.xep.PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES
by saying

java -Dcom.renderx.xep.PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES=false com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver

or set XEP option (that is, *after* the class name)

java com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver -Dcom.renderx.xep.PAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES=false

or use the short form of XEP option (not JVM property)

java com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver -DPAGEWIDE_FOOTNOTES=false
