If you have access to GMT it is fairly straightforward.

So if you had say the gravity anomaly data, the GMT command (windows
commad window):

GMT parameters to grid 2016 Mars gravity grids:

xyz2grd ggmro_120_anom_100.img -GGGM-3_anom.grd -R0/360/-90/90
-I5760+/2880+ -ZTLd -V
Note: the Increment -I setting is set to use the exact node dimensions
(with the +)

I think the data gives you the exact size of the raster and the coordinates.

To get this into QGIS you could convert (from GMT) to .asc or Surfer .grd

eg grdconvert grav.grd grav.asc=ef

or grdconvert grav.grd grav_surfer.grd=sf

These data formats are the ones I use most for rasters in QGIS.

Hope this helps.
