The actual SVG file does not define a resolution,  just (optionally) fixed dimensions or (more usually) an aspect ratio and
no fixed dimensions.

You can rasterise your SVG file at any desired resolution using Batik:
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/
and there is a command line argument to specify the desired dpi.

FOLLOWUP: JULY 5, 2006 - What I learned from Andrej

Well, its actually much simpler than that: I was using program PAJEK, which makes SVG files 
but also makes *.eps images that are already vectorized and scalable. They can go straight to 
the publisher as is, or converted to pdf. Note that just converting an image to eps from 
another file type does not make it vectorized and scalable. It needs to be created as a 
vectorized and scalable eps image first by appropriate software.
