You can't log that in a way you're logging the referer etc. You'll need some embedded javascript code which reads the resolution and requests something, e.g. a 1x1 px image like /image.jpg?res=1600x1024 while the values were generated by javascript. Now, a request for /image.jpg?res=1600x1024 would appear in your logs.
