I was wondering if there is a way of getting a "continued on the next pages" at the bottom of the page when a block is broken across pages or "continued..." at the top of a page when a block is broken across page in XSL FO.

The common workaround is to use markers. Define a marker with the
"continued...." text at the beginning of the block you want to have marked as such, redefine it as empty at the end (or at the beginning
of the next block, whatever fits your requirement), and retrieve the
marker class in the footer. The drawback is that the "continued..."
text is not part of the flow, resulting whitespace above the footer
or different footer layouts, but people rarely notice.
Could you avoid the whitespace by resetting the block to have 0pt font size?
