Yes, it is determined by the data (see lines 1154 - 1189 in -spmap--).
 I believe it tries to minimize the amount of blank space around the
map.  You can use the -xsize()- and -ysize()- options to control of
the aspect ratio or -gsize()- may be useful or use -freestyle- to have
control over the formatting options.
