If you can use PNG instead of PDF for importing into your LaTeX

export as bitmap and specify "drawing" instead of "document".
Alternatively you can set
the document size to the same as the drawing.
The point is that PNG format is not scalable... There is a workaround:
save the picture as PS and then use ps2epsi, and the result is an
autocropped EPS picture; then, you can use epstopdf to get an
autocropped pdf picture, without loosing the scalability property.
However, the problem is that, if the picture had transparency
features, they were lost in the middle of the process; only the pdf
pictures produced directly with Inkscape preserve the transparency
features. Therefore, the autocrop feature is essential!
