The SVGSVGElement interface has a currentScale attribute available for
this purpose.

If you had your outermost <svg> element stored in the variable "svg" in
an EcmaScript script, you could do this:

svg.currentScale = myDesiredScale;

SVGSVGElement::currentScale is a "live" object in Adobe SVG Viewer 3.0
