    In this case, XEP should display the image using its intrinsic
    size. The size itself may depend on the resolution specified
    in the image; so it is hard to say anything without looking
    at the images themselves.

    A typical way of doing it:

    <fo:external-graphic src="url(...)"
      content-width="scale-to-fit" width="100%"

    This will leave images at their natural size, unless
    their width exceeds the page width; in which case
    they will be scaled down to the available space.
