You, sir, are a freaking genius! That's a great tip, and reading the
docs I would never have worked that out.

For the record:

Where: s = "some/path/somefile.svg" or s="<svg ...>...</svg>"
h = rsvg.Handle( file=s ) or ( data=s )
d = h.get_dimension_data()

Watch out for stray width/height attributes in the <svg> tag, they seem 
to take priority over the actual dimensions of any other tags.

Sorted, many thanks.
