Resolution is really missing. Your device report descriptor uses wrong
value for inches.
I looked at it one more time and found out that it conforms old MS's
multitouch specs and uses so called "serial packet reporting mode" which
is absent in modern specs.

I added support of it to hmt(4) driver. Patch is attached. Please test
it. It consist of 2 parts:

- sys/dev/hid/hid.c - workarounds resolution issue. It can be used with
     previous patch

- sys/dev/hid/hmt.c - adds support for serial mode to hmt. It should be
used with previous patch reverted. (but keep sys/dev/hid/hid.c)
