I believe the mixer has a differential input.  The 100nF cap just shorts pin 2 of
the mixer to ground so that the input is single-ended.  You can take that cap
out of the picture.

There are formulas for calculating the values of the rest components, based on the
assumption that the bandwidth of the matching network B < fo/10, where fo = center freq
of the circuit.

1. Calculate:

Qt = fo/B
C = 1/(2*pi*B*Rt)
L = 1/((2*pi*fo)^2*C)
N^2 = Rt/R2

2. Calculate:

Qp = sqrt(Qt^2/N^2 - 1)

3. C1 and C2 are given by:

C2 = Qp/(2*pi*fo*R2)

Cse = C2*(Qp^2+1)/Qp^2

C1 = Cse*C/(Cse - C)
