If you literally mean 'localhost' you can't do that. You have no control
over where the mail client reading the 'disarmed' email might be or what
its notion of 'localhost' is.

MailScanner also doesn't know what URL will access 1x1spacer.gif on the
local machine even if it knows where it put it.

So really the only sensible default might be

Your-MailScanner-CDN = "https://s3.amazonaws.com/mailscanner/images"
Web Bug Replacement = %Your-MailScanner-CDN%/1x1spacer.gif
