Pardon me but I cannot understand the reason for presenting your query
like that. Why not give a value relative to the container value (in %)?
If you know the normal dimensions of the image, you can give those to
the image container instead; then use percentage values as dimensions
for the image.

Suppose you have a 100*50px image:

<div style="width:100px;height:50px;">
 <img src="myImage.png" style="width:50%;height:50%;"/>

That will give you the image in half of the original size.
But I'm sure you probably need a more dynamic solution; could rephrase
your query to show the problem leading you in this?

Kindest regards,
