Playing around with it a bit, you can right-click on a layer in the
legend and get an "Export" option which produces a file containing
background GEOMETRYCOLLECTION (MULTIPOLYGON (((51146.64788209766

By reading this into R and chopping out everything that isn't WKT
(which starts with GEOMETRYCOLLECTION) I can recover a polygon....
The Luxembourg example supplied with the s/w seems to be a bit
different to yours, but if you can see both of your iceland polygons
as layers in the legend you might be able to right-click and export as
WKT and get it into R that way.
For the Lux example, I save background.out.txt and read in:
txt = scan("~/background.out.txt",what="",sep="\t")
then the fourth item is the WKT, so I do:
p = readWKT(txt)
then I can plot p as a spatial object:
The SVG output does seem to be a representation of what's in the
current view window so not really meant for analysis...
