I'm using Inkscape to convert an svg to eps. But when I save the svg as eps and open the eps using Gsview, the image is not placed at the center of the page, and even some parts of it are out of view.

How can I save to eps in a way that end up with the image placed at the center of the page?

What is your aim? It seems to be more a GSview use issue than a conversion issue.

Gswiew tends to ignore the page size for certain kind of files (see GSview Help), and sometimes you need to change manually the page size using the Media menu.

For example, converting a SVG file (Hurricane-en.svg) in eps with Inkscape and opening the exported file in GSview, by default some part are leave out of view (note that for a landscape image you need to check the Rotate Media option):

default in gsview

Changing the media settings you are able to see the entire image:

If you need to export the file as a PDF, in GSwiew you must select the Shrink to fit Page Size option to ensure that all your image is included.
