Also page zoom does not affect the base font size, so using ems does  
nothing to address the problem at hand.

As I understand it, the problem is that zooming in with page zoom makes  
the viewport narrower (in CSS pixels), so the "narrow" media query  
(correctly) starts to match, but Alice wanted the high-resolution image to  
be shown.
