All the perfectly circular shapes in the image are dust particles on Cassini's camera lenses.

I think you should read the text that goes with the figure, this image has not been validated or calibrated, any strange thing can be in there. Also, I don't think we would expect to see craters, as Titan is covered in haze, so just wait a little while and you will get the calibrated image.
