IM uses Ghostscript to process PDF input and output, so this is probably a question of the options you define in delegates.xml for the gs command line. There seem to be options that get Ghostscript to produce PDF/X-1a compliant output.

I would suggest that you experiment with standalone GS. If you can get that to work, you can then add a line to the delegates.xml file so that IM can create it using the GS arguments.
