If you want indented paragraphs then you can use
paragraph-indent-text-mode or paragraph-indent-minor-mode.  That will
make fill-paragraph behave itself in this case.

However, AFAIK, out-of-the-box Emacs provides no way to deal with both
types of paragraphs in one buffer.  You have to pick either space
separated paragraphs or indented paragraphs.
