procedure TForm1.RavePrintDBBitmap ( XPOS, YPos , Xsize, YSize : Real ; AReport : TBasereport );
var  Bitmap              : TBitmap;
     TableGraphicField   : TGraphicField;
begin


        // TableGraphicField := ;

        Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
        try

          GraphicFieldToBitmap( ReportTableGraphic  , Bitmap);
          AReport.PrintBitmapRect(XPos,YPos,XPos + Xsize, YPos + YSize,Bitmap);
        finally

No you cant

There is no TField property that will convert binary data to Image data

You have to convert the data properly to a Graphic object

you could use a stream to first get the field data then save it to a bitmap

var
  F: TField;
  Bitmap  : TBitmap;
  Stream: TMemoryStream;
begin
   F := ReportTable.FieldbyName(YourFieldName);
   Stream := TmemoryStream.Create;
   try
       TBlobField(F).SaveToStream(Stream);
        Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
        try
          Stream.Seek(0, soFromBeginning);
          Bitmap.LoadFromStream(Stream);
          AReport.PrintBitmapRect(XPos,YPos,XPos + Xsize, YPos + YSize,Bitmap);
        finally
          Bitmap.Free;
        end;
    finally
       FreeAndNil(Stream);
   end;

You can cast the field as follows:
procedure TForm1.RavePrintDBBitmap ( XPOS, YPos , Xsize, YSize : Real ; AReport : TBasereport );
var  Bitmap              : TBitmap;
     TableGraphicField   : TGraphicField;
begin
        // TableGraphicField := ;
        Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
        try
          //GraphicFieldToBitmap( ReportTableGraphic  , Bitmap);
          GraphicFieldToBitmap(TBlobField(ReportTable.FieldbyName('Graphic')), Bitmap);
          AReport.PrintBitmapRect(XPos,YPos,XPos + Xsize, YPos + YSize,Bitmap);
        finally
          Bitmap.Free;
        end;
end;
