hm , it looks like a bad match with  between width=17cm and textwidth
This extreme example seems to works
\setuplayout[location=doublesided,width=20pc]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided,location={margin,header}]
\setupfloat[figure][location=inner]
\showframe
\starttext
% An extra page. \page[yes]
\dorecurse{4}{
\placefigure[]{caption}{\externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=30pc]}\page}
\stoptext
