Hardcoded DPI settings in PDF and Cairo backends

which does not make any sense to me. Why was the kwargs readout
disabled, even if the default setting was already 72dpi?

Before that change, the dpi setting changed the size of the pages
produced by the pdf backend, not the resolution. But since revision 6645
(release version 0.98.5.2) the dpi argument should set the resolution
of images again. (I think this used to work before the Great Transform
Refactoring, so in versions on the 0.91 branch it should work, too.)
