No, this effect is not achievable with XSL FO. fo:float will
always stretch to accommodate its content, so floats width will
be defined by image width. And there is no way to dynamically obtain
information about image width at runtime.
Note also that if you want to restrict float width you should place
inside fo:block-container with explicit width (inline-progression-dimension) specified.
While 'width' on fo:block mustn't make any effect it erroneously does
in current XEP version (this behavior is likely to change in future
