db.auth_user.picture is a Field object -- you need that actual value of the 
"picture" field from a particular user record.

Hard to say what's wrong here, as we don't know what "b" is. Also, what's 
in the "..." may be important -- "args" should be an argument of the URL 
function, not an attribute of the img tag -- but we can't tell how you have 
used it here.

row.picture is just the DAL-generated filename of the picture -- just 
inserting that in the view won't create an image tag for the picture.

Without a preceding "=", nothing will be inserted in the view.

Again, no "=", and db.auth_user.picture is a Field object.

Assuming you want to display all users:

users = db(db.auth_user).select()  # pass this to the view

In the view:

{{for user in users:}}
<img src="{{=URL('default', 'download', args=user.picture)}}">

Before proceeding, it might help if you spend some time going through the
