You are defining a window through which you can see the image.  The bottom
of this window is *not* set to zero, it is auto configured.  If all of
your data is above a certain value, there's usually no desire to show the
part of the image that is below this value,  the bottom of your window
is thus set at a value above zero.

With the "--lower-limit" option, you define the *maximum* value for
the bottom of your canvas.  With a lower-limit of 0, the bottom of
the canvas cannot be higher than 0 on the y-axis.
