libtiff uses 256x256 tiles by default, but specification does not define any default value for this tag, so it is better to set this values manually. I can add logic to limit the tile size by the image dimensions, but I'm not sure it is necessary.

I think that software exists which is designed for particular tile sizes and libtiff should not impose any arbitrary limit, even if the size of the tile is larger than the image itself.
