Some time ago I was looking into this since I wanted to use st with w3m, what I found out is that this is mostly w3m-imgs settings (unless you managed to patch it), it check for specific terminal, afaik it supports only linux, xterm, and <something>fbterm, nothing else. So for example it does not show images on "fbterm". For a little bit I tried looking ant w3m and w3m-img source, but it seemed a bit scary to me. Also simply setting different TERM var does not seem to make it work, so presumably it is checking some more stuff. But I dont know much about workings of terminals so I can't say anything more.
