Depends. If you remove the user's ~/-xfce4 setting directory,
they should go back to the defaults. But what are the defaults?
Maybe those are already too small.

As Xfce 4 is a Gtk+ application, you can try a general override
of fonts with a ~/.gtkrc-2.0, containing

	gtk-font-name="Tahoma 12"

as an example to override. You can also change your display's
DPI (depending on if you're using a CRT or LCD) in X's configuration

I'd say the best way is to load Xfce 4 with its defaults, then
alter them using its configuration tools, which will result in
a "different" user configuration in the ~/.xfce4 directory.
