Was it even ever made explicitly clear that this game's protagonist is Mario?

We all know that he's referred to as Jumpman, but does that necessarily mean he's Mario? Could he be no more than just a Mario lookalike? Because it's possible that they decided to ditch the name and go with Mario, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Jumpman is Mario.
