Thanks for your comment.

The working group agrees that the use of "screen pixel" is misleading.  What
intended is that it is a coordinate within the image relative to the original
size of the image, regardless of its size on the screen when rendered.  We will
change to "pixel values relative to the embedded object" to ensure that it
addresses all cases.

Best wishes,
