you can write a script for it.

however the easiest way to do it, is indeed to have the PP open and look up there the image size (after having let the frame fit to the image).

btw, you are abusing scribus as a pdf converter... no wonder that you don't have an easy time...

i wonder if you should not have a look at ghostscript instead... x/1-a is not really supported but, with a bit of luck, you may find your way through it:

good luck
