I am not sure I understand how 'background-size' is relevant to the

Note: I am using linear-gradient, not radial one as in your sample.
Background-size defines [clipping] rectangle of the gradient fill.
Outside it you will have some solid color if any.

Let's assume that you want to achieve exactly this gradient:
how you would do this?

You can use background-size with gradients.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<style type="text/css">
div {
height: 200px; width: 200px;
-moz-border-radius: 100px 100px;
border-radius: 100px 100px;
background: #385179;
background: #385BE1 -moz-radial-gradient(rgba(255,255,255,1),
rgba(56,91,225,0)) -50px -50px no-repeat;
background: #385BE1 -webkit-gradient(radial, 125 125, 0, 125 125, 150,
from(rgba(255,255,255,1)), to(rgba(56,91,225,0))) -50px -50px no-repeat;
-moz-background-size: 250px 250px;
background-size: 250px 250px;

Also the I believe the current CSS gradient behavior is the same as SVG
