The way to centre a <table> is to put it in a <table-and-caption> and use 
text-align="center".  A working example is below.

I hope this helps.

<table-and-caption text-align="center">
   <table border="solid" border-collapse="collapse" table-layout="fixed">
     <table-column column-width="2cm"/>
     <table-column column-width="2cm"/>
     <table-body>
       <table-row>
         <table-cell><block>a</block></table-cell>
         <table-cell><block>b</block></table-cell>
       </table-row>
     </table-body>
   </table>
</table-and-caption>
