Thank you for your question.
As I know default Magento import does not allow to import images from remote URLs. You need to download them from those URLS to 'media/import' directory at your FTP. Then to assign images to products in your Magento import file indicate image name for each products (with slash at the beginning - e.g. /imagename.jpg ). If you need to import images directly from URL without saving them first, you cay look for some script to do the task. Other way via extension. I know the one that allows to do it - Store Manager for Magento, but its paid. But in case you need to do the job without fees, you can use trial of the extension - http://www.mag-manager.com/free-download/
