   It isn't very easy.  From the SVGOMImageElement you can use the 
getGraphicsNode method to get the GraphicsNode that is the 'peer' to the 
element.  You can then poke around it's subtree, and find the 
child (assuming the image references a raster format).  The 
has a 'Filter' which is the image - but it is a resolution independent 
view of
the image.  You can get this rendered to a fixed size and use the 
interface to get data out of it.

   I would suggest that manipulations of the graphic display are best done
using svg rather than trying to twiddle raster images...
