jQuery: Get Actual Width of Image

How can I get the ACTUAL width of an image, not the width of the image as it is displayed?

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
 $('img:eq(0)').attr('src', $('img:eq(0)').attr('src')).load(function () {

   alert('The width of the image as it is displayed  is: ' +  $('img').width() );
   alert('The actual width of the image is: ' +  '???' );
   //  Should be 2272 

 })
});

</script>
<style type="text/css">
html, body, p, img {
width: 100%;
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
}
</style>

</head>
<body>

<p>
 <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7b/Pic-du-midi-dossau.jpg" alt="" />
</p>

</body>
</html>

var img = document.getElementById('imageid'); 
//or however you get a handle to the IMG
var width = img.clientWidth;
var height = img.clientHeight;
