SVG: scaling if no width/height is given

the problem described here -> is caused by a 
missing width and height attribute of the SVG given as an example. So, 
what would we expect given a ViewBox attribute when importing a graphic?

What I'd expect is that the aspect ratio is kept and a reasonable 
scaling is applied in order to fill a page, table cell or whatever. And 
that the little green squares (handles?) behave like a bounding box for 
the graphic content. Is that correct?

What I've achieved so far is the correct scaling. What I'm looking for 
is where the total size of the graphic is still determined wrong (see 
attached screenshot) -> little green squares are more like DIN A4 than 
the ViewBox size.
