Yes, because that is the format of the test image that Mateusz and I agreed
to use for our tests...
As explained in this recent post (addressed to
you) the link to
that code was meant only as a usage example...

The Marble GeoTIFFs seem to be tiled...
Anyways, as explained in the post above mentioned, what I was trying to do
(and hopefully did do) was to add a low level interface (that you asked for)
that enables things like row and/or tile access...
