Everyone else has covered this, but I'll pull it together.  You havethe 0D0A
characters in the result because they are included in the data:

    <![CDATA[sample.htm ]]>

There is a newline before and after the CDATA part (you don't need the
CDATA, as has been said).  So your solution

<image_url><![CDATA[sample.htm ]]></image_url>

would take care of it in the source data.  normalize-space() will remove the
extra whitespace if there is any in the source.  So you can handle it in the
data, in the stylesheet, or both.  The CDATA does nothing for you.

Of course, if your filename could have two consecutive spaces, (like

       sam  ple.htm

you don't want to use normalize-space() because it would give you one space,
not two.  That's probably very unlikely.
