So I guess it doesn't matter if I do the image either using dd or xfsdump.
I'd prefer dd since I get a lot of issues trying to compile xfsprogs under Irix.

Assuming that I get an image using dd, would a simple mount command suffice
to use the xfs utils ? :
$ mount -t xfs -o loop disk.img /mnt

Or there are some intermediate steps that I need to take in order to
mount an xfs disk
image file on Linux ?

I would add ",ro" after loop like this :

$ mount -t xfs -o loop,ro disk.img /mnt

But that's just a precaution and not necessary. This way if you
manage to mess something up some way you can just try again since
you're then mounting readonly.

Unless you were planning on updating the image and then dd'ing it back
to the original device of course.
