[SVGMobile12] SVGT12-207: Section 7.13 doesn't say how to get aspect ratio from viewBox

In section 7.13 the SVG 1.2 Tiny spec says:

# [...] the aspect ratio is calculated from the width and height of the 
# viewBox specified for the current SVG document fragment.

The specification does not say _how_ this is done. Should the height be 
divided by the width, or vice versa, or something else?

While there is only one obvious choice, please ensure that the 
specification is clear that it is a normative requirement that that choice 
be the one that is implemented.
