Check your Xorg.log file to see what DPI your display is running at 
(grep DPI /var/log/Xorg.0.log); the fonts are scaled for an assumed 
100dpi display. You can change this with the DisplaySize parameter in 
the Monitor section of your xorg.conf (or equivalent.)

For a 720x480 display you need 'DisplaySize 182 121' or thereabouts.
