If you want the image to appear on paper at 28mm high at 100dpi you can calculate the size of the image in pixels using that information.

28mm high at 100dpi works out to 110 pixels. If you are trying to scale an image that is over 800 pixels high you are losing a lot of information. I would suggest you up your dpi value to at least 300 for such a small image.
