It seems that a percental width does not work on
fo:external-graphic. Use an absolute measure like width="5cm".
Note that "75%" won't scale the image to 75% of the original
width, even if it worked, it would scale the image to 75% of
the width of the enclosing reference area. Note further that
when it comes to rendering of bitmapped images to physical
devices your definition of "original size" may be quite
different from anyone's else, but still everyone is right.
