Thank you for the advice.
I will sum this up on the wiki page.
So if I understand correctly we have to support certain values even if
they are illegal ?

Right, but strictly speaking the value "auto" is illegal for
column-width. FOP currently defaults to "proportional-column-width(1)"
if no value is specified.
Another thing we should be careful about is the distinction between the
value set for table-layout and the effective algorithm to be used. If
you specify table-layout="fixed" but without an ipd, the rules for
automatic table layout are activated.

My first question, really simple but confusing to me, is about what is
supposed to happen when table-layout="fixed" and one of the columns
column-width="auto" ? Am I supposed to find out the optimal width
that column ?
Yes, but with one big difference compared to table-layout="auto".
IIRC, CSS mentions this case explicitly: when table-layout="fixed"
and column-width="auto" then the column-widths are ultimately the
widths necessary for the cells in the first row. No need to look at
the whole table, in any case...
