Fit/Stretch SVG to div background without reescaling

I have this SVG file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- Generator: Adobe Illustrator 15.0.0, SVG Export Plug-In -->
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "" [
<!ENTITY ns_flows "">
<svg version="1.1"
xmlns="" xmlns:xlink="" xmlns:a=""
x="0px" y="0px" width="1px" height="100%" viewBox="64 0 1 26" enable-background="new 64 0 1 26" xml:space="preserve">
<path id="Outer_dark_border_1_" opacity="0.8" fill="#2F5870" d="M244,0H12C5.373,0,0,5.373,0,12v218v14v12h12h232h12v-12v-14V12

<path id="Outer_light_border_1_" opacity="0.8" fill="#8DAFC4" d="M243.094,1H12.906C6.331,1,1,6.331,1,12.906V234v9.094V255h11.906

<linearGradient id="Top_gradient_2_" gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse" x1="128" y1="24" x2="128" y2="2">

<path id="Top_gradient_1_" opacity="0.8" fill="url(#Top_gradient_2_)" d="M243,2H13C6.925,2,2,6.925,2,13v11h11h230h11V13
<path id="Inner_dark_border_1_" opacity="0.8" fill="#2F5870" d="M8,25v223h240V25H8z M247,247H9V26h238V247z"/>
<path id="Inner_light_border_1_" opacity="0.8" fill="#8DAFC4" d="M7,24v225h242V24H7z M248,248H8V25h240V248z"/>
<polygon id="Solid_border_1_" opacity="0.8" fill="#427B9D" points="249,24 249,249 7,249 7,24 2,24 2,254 10,254 254,254 254,246
254,24 "/>
<rect id="top_1_" x="64" fill="none" width="1" height="26"/>

and this HTML file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<div style="background: url(top.svg); width: 900px; height: 100px;">

and the result looks like this:

What I want is the SVG to stretch to the container. As you can see from the "asd", it only stretches the SVG horizontally, and centers vertically. I have tried to play around with dimensions and I have really no idea how to accomplish this.

So, to be clear: I want the blue bar to fill the entire div, so that ASD is in the top of it.

Update: when I change the height of the SVG from height="100%" to height="26px", then it looks like this:

I am almost there, but still not there.

and when changing width and height of svg element both to 100%, it looks like this which is not correct:

I solved my problem with CSS background-size: 100% 100%.
