My recollection is that the OWL cardinalities are expressed as 
xsd:nonNegativeInteger values.  It's not clear to me that RDF has a way to 
allow xsd:integer values where these are required, though I think the other 
way would work through datatype subclass membership; e.g.:

    _:x a xsd:nonNegativeInteger .
    xsd:nonNegativeInteger rdfs:subClassOf xsd:integer .
    _:x a xsd:integer .

But not the other way round.
