A German/English dictionary translates 'Woher sind Sie?' to 'Where do you come from?' Is German flexible in the use of 'are from' and 'come from'?

Yes, you can use kommen aus and sein aus 100% interchangeably. (Unlike in English, where sometimes to come from is preferred over to be from or vice versa.)
