which is clear enough, but how can you, for example, let the x-axis be
automatic, and set limits for the y-axis only? I couldn't find an example of
that usage of axis.

The only way I'm aware of doing this in Matlab is with handle graphics syntax that isn't supported in octave. If I understand correctly, part of the rationale for ripping out gset and related commands in octave was to make it easier to write a handle graphics module that could theoretically support all of that eventually. Until someone writes such a module, you are probably justified in using __gunplot_raw__ to do things like this if you need it.
