  If the author didn't put such a statement in their camera block, then
maybe the author didn't even intend for the image to be rendered in other
aspect ratios?

  And if you really want to censor part of the image so that it will fit
your screen, then how about rendering it with the intended aspect ratio
and the width of your screen, and then clip it with image editing software?
At least that way you have more control over what you are censoring.
