These are the size of the images the merchants are sending. It's possible that those merchants aren't providing a thumbnail version either.
My only suggestion would be to either link to the images directly from the merchants' websites (to reduce the http requests to your site) or possible contact this user about his plugin: /showthread.php?t=7996
