To format PDF for iPad, the very first thing is to know iPad display dimensions. It is 1024x768 pixels, which implies, for better reading, images should be close to that dimensions. Otherwise they will be blurry.

Second, take page dimensions into consideration, namely the height and width of the PDF pages. Extremely wide and tall could make it rather difficult to fit on the display. Even zooming in or zooming out cannot work out perfectly. And make sure the text is clear enough for the display.
