I don't think you should specify ANYTHING in the QrCodeWidget
constructor, because you don't know what the parameters do.  You can go
look at the code, if you want, but I don't think it will help.

Just let the widget generate the code in whatever size makes it
comfortable.  For the sample I gave, it ends up being just over one inch

Then, resize it to your desired size when you place it into a Drawing. 
That's the canonical way to use this widget.
