We haven't implemented either of those features yet. I think one of the reasons they are not part of the demo is because both require additional third party software and configuration. It could probably be better documented, but here is some info that might help you get started when you're ready.

In the Ethnographic Maps example I gave above, our metadata contains the archival image dimensions, so we use that to set the height and width before it gets loaded. Are you using an image server? Djatoka has a metadata service that you can query, which might be an alternative if you don't have image dimensions.

Building off the demo assumes a fixed width/height ratio, which in our experience is not always the case (consider the book with the occasional map foldout).

My current hack has "auto" filled to the width, which breaks centering and thumbs, but renders the odd page as legible.
