Inkscape's extensions are written in Python - which means the soruce code for the extension itself is available as a text-editable file in your system.

When you import a vector file into inkscape, it comes in as a group of vector objects. Thus resolution isn't an issue. I do this a lot for graphs from origin and python/matplotlib.

This doesn't directly answer your question about converting the pixels to vector shapes, but... If the only reason you want to convert the pixels to vector shapes is to scale then it's not really necessary (it would be nice, but if your having trouble doing it, it's not essential).

Someone answered me on another forum, so I'll put the answer here as well in case anyone else is looking in the future. Creating a compound path should output a single path within your SVG code. Select your elements and then Object → Compound Path → Make. Keep in mind this requires your entire SVG to be just one color.

Set up your grid via File → Document Properties → Grid and File → Document Properties → Snap as Suragch suggested. Or go to Inkscape preferences → Snapping and Inkscape preferences → Grid to affect all documents you edit. On my Inkscape, the grid spacing was set to 1px which is not going to be helpful, so increase it to ...
