Width option should be the same as your logo image width(x) dimension is. To setup a Retina logo, you need to upload 2x bigger image than the Width option is set, for ex: if the Logo image width(x dimension) is 400px, then you should set Width option to 200px.
Also, you can Show/Hide Tagline under the Logo image. Use Display Site Title and Tagline checkbox for that.
