I think what you want to do is make a given size frame then adjust image 
to frame, as in this script:

something like this:

f = scribus.createImage(x, y, pwidth, pheight)
scribus.loadImage(imagedir + '/' + D[imagecount], f)
scribus.setScaleImageToFrame(scaletoframe=1, proportional=1, name=f)

so you make the frame, load the image, then adjust image to frame.
