The image may or may not include initrd, if yes it will quite likely
be compressed. What does readelf and/or objdump say about the file?

There's no pre-made tool for taking apart those ELF images. You can
of course always peruse the mkelfImage source code to find out all

svn co svn://coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk/util/mkelfImage
