We already know it and use it for LilyPond documentation (although Info
files with image references are not distributed with the binaries we
provide on lilypond.org).

Although it's officially the latest stable release, 2.10.33 is really
ancient.  I can recommend you to switch to 2.11.65, which is a release
candidate for 2.12.0; with this version, I get a PNG when running your
test file with the exact command line you mentioned.

FWIW lilypond-book doesn't use @image when generating Texinfo output for
HTML, it directly inserts HTML code as you have noticed.
