As far as I know the JSVGCanvas is really for viewing the document. This

This is the sort of code that you need (without error handling and other

GVTBuilder builder = new GVTBuilder();
BridgeContext ctx = new BridgeContext(userAgent);
GraphicsNode root = builder.build(ctx, doc);
float w = (float)ctx.getDocumentSize().getWidth();
float h = (float)ctx.getDocumentSize().getHeight();
Graphics2D graphics = create graphic from buffered image...
