You have better chances when asking this the jython-users list.
I have no experience with SVG, but
in general to use a Java API in jython:
- put the .zip or .jar on the class path when invoking jython and then
- import the API classes in your jython code.

Eg. since classes.zip is already on the class path you can do:

import java.lang.System as jsys

jsys.out.println("""
Welcome to the wonderful world of Jython.
""")

print dir(jsys.out)
print dir(jsys.out.__class__)


Have fun,
Ype
