[R] specifying x-axis scale on random forest variable importance plot

The default range is the range of the variable in the data.  It wouldn't
make much sense to extend beyond that.  If you want to restrict the
range, the varImpPlot() function does return the x-y pairs, so you can
construct your own plot from that.
