I imported it from a jpg file. 

It would be nice to have it in sepia like an old time photo. Is there 
a way to tint it in Inkscape? 

It seems like you're using the wrong tool for the job, though. Using one
of the Gimp colour tools, or one of its scripts, would give you much
more flexibility about adapting to the contrast in the input image and
jiggling the range of colours in the output.

I agree with Daniel and would recommend using the Gimp or any
other bitmap editor for that. It' s much less complicated.

In the Gimp, the feature would be 'Tools > Colors > Hue-Saturation'.
This is much more flexible than using 'Tools > Colors > Colorize...'
