There's actually an example of a programmatic zoom right in the code you are looking at:

svg.select(".zoom").call(zoom.transform, d3.zoomIdentity
  .scale(width / (s[1] - s[0]))
  .translate(-s[0], 0));

So, say we stored our "view" JSON in terms of zoomed to dates:

["2003-06-12T19:24:00.000Z","2006-05-20T19:24:00.000Z"]

Loading it would simply be:

d3.json("viewData.json", function(error, data) {
  var d = data.map(function(d){
    return new Date(d);
  })
  svg.select(".zoom")
    .transition()
    .call(zoom.transform, d3.zoomIdentity
      .scale(width / (x(d[1]) - x(d[0])))
      .translate(-x(d[0]), 0)
    );
});

Here's a running example.
