I'm trying to use a simple SVG drawing in an FO document and I'm not
seeing how to control the rendered size. I know it is some interaction
between settings in the FO data and values in the SVG but my initial Web
search did not lead me to any answers.

I'm using FOP for this exercise.

Here is my FO markup, within a static-content region that is 7in wide:

<fo:instream-foreign-object width="100%" height="9pt">

          <svg version="1.1" id="Layer_1"
xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px"
	 viewBox="0 0 612 792" enable-background="new 0 0 612 792"
<rect x="53.9" y="27" fill="#9A9A9A" width="504.1" height="9"/>

This produces a simple shaded rectangle, but the rendered size on the page
is tiny,

I created the SVG by editing in Illustrator a PDF that had the box I
wanted then saving the Illustrator file as SVG. The SVG markup is exactly
what Illustrator produced.

Any guidance on what I need to adjust to control the size of the rendered
SVG to my desires?
