The bounding box is really small. The img size is correct for so few data.

mkgmap is complaining about no bounds found. I think it should complete 
compilation though. Try downloading boundaries from [1] and placing them 
in a directory called bounds in the same folder than mkgmap. Your 
command worked for me with no errors.

You can have a look at [2] as a start point.
