Yuhui - 

Currently there are no options for setting the size of the SVG image upon
generation.  This would be a nice enhancement.  Still, it's primary purpose
is to generate a high quality image, not for navigation on the web.

Why do you want to convert the SVG to PNG?  The default behavior of the
browser is to export PNG images.  There are several projects under
development to create rasterized images from vector data - see autotrace at
sourceforge for one.
