The border is added by ASP.NET Image control from which our control inherits. You could add css classes in your theme to override the style that applies over the image tag by using !important.
Another option is creating a custom class that inherits from SitefinityImage and overriding AddAttributesToRender without calling the base and implement your own way for rendering.
The border is called from the base only when this.BorderWidth is empty.
