Question Size of images in epub/kepub

I've happened to read some books with some inline images (formulas, musical notations, special chars like āēīōū... etc, in jpg or bmp), and their sizes appear to be 'correct' on the calibre viewer.

However, when opened with the nickel viewer of my H2O, the images become tiny and unreadable in some cases. With the special chars I can regex it into corresponding ones, but not with formulas and musical notations. Is this a known problem? Is there a way to make it stretched like in calibre viewer? I'd be grateful if anyone comes up with some suggestions. Thanks!

p.s. I've tried the original epub and converted kepub, the image sizes look the same despite the super large font size with epub.

Here are some examples: the 'Salūte' becomes 'Salūte' ( in which the 'ū' is a bitmap), and the same book opened in calibre & nickel:
