It's "region" (or cellhd) has resolution 1x1 and something like:

north = <cols>
west  = 0
south = 0
east  = <rows>

Now, say you know what the X-Y resolution should be, and what the
north/south/east/west values should be (but you didn't have a TIFF World
file) -- you can hack the cellhd file directly.

But, if you only know that info in relation to another data set -- check
out i.rectify and related...
