Short answer is you can't. 

Longer is, depends what you want to do. 
Add it in cwd, use IPython.display.Image or use like to image url which depending on IPython version in markdown is :

![alt text](files/<path to image>)   on < 2.0
![alt text](<path to image>)   on >= 2.0

More information in example notebooks that introduce all theses concepts.
