[Tig] test chart image size, pixel question

I want to generate a test chart for use on a 4:3 PAL SDI monitor, and  
will have to do a pixel aspect translation I presume, as the program  
to generate the chart works with square pixels.   See
the "Test Generator Program" heading at
http://tig.colorist.org/wiki3/index.php/Useful_reference_links

and the chart I'll use is the first at
http://tig.colorist.org/wiki3/index.php/Test_Image_Generator_Program

there is an option to the program (appropriately called "tig"), -m,  
that takes as an argument <xres>x<yres>.  What would be the best  
settings to use, given the pixel differences between SDI video and  
graphics (per se)?

any help appreciated.
