Your xorg.conf doesn't set the variable DisplaySize.
Therefore you get a default dpi which might not match your
monitor well.

Usually sax2 sets DisplaySize, I don't know why it is missing
in your xorg.conf.

Please add a variable DisplaySize to the "Monitor" section of
your xorg.conf like in this example:

Section "Monitor"
Option "CalcAlgorithm" "XServerPool"
DisplaySize 430 270
HorizSync 30-66
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "PHILIPS 200W"
Option "DPMS"
VendorName "PHILIPS"
VertRefresh 30-61
UseModes "Modes[0]"

The two values behind DisplaySize are the width and the height of
your monitor in millimeters.

If you set correct values there, you should get reasonable font sizes.

On to of that, just to make sure (especially if you use Gnome
applications), you may want to set the correct dpi of your display in
the Gnome and KDE control centres.

Calculate the correct dpi from the size of your display and the number
of pixels.

If the DisplaySize and dpi settings are correct, you should get reasonable
font sizes.
