As mentioned in IsaViz's installation instructions [1], you must use 
v1.8.9 or later of GraphViz (version 1.9 or later strongly recommended). 
I've used 1.9 for a long time, and now I use 1.12.

v1.8.2 is buggy. It might work outside of IsaViz, but it produces 
invalid SVG documents (they are not well-formed XML, as 'xlink' is not 
bound to any namespace URI, and this causes the XML parser used by 
IsaViz (Xerces-J2) to complain).

I had no trouble importing your file on my computer (see the SVG 
rendering of the imported file attached). So I'm now almost sure this is 
because of your version of GraphViz. Considering the above-mentioned 
problem, it is normal behaviour that you cannot import any RDF file, as 
any SVG file output by GraphViz 1.8.x with x < 9 will produce XML that 
is not well-formed.
