(Untested)

\dimexpr\measure{base}+2bp\relax

or 

\dimexpr\measured{base}+2bp\relax

should work.

(Again, untested)

\startuseMPgraphic{background-image}
  input graphic.mp;
\stopuseMPgraphic

\defineoverlay[background-image][\useMPgraphic{background-image}]

\setupbackgrounds[page][background={background-image}]
