The size of the system fonts
The font size is often set in the application itself. For instance, you can set firefox font family and size in the preferences panel. For xterm the default fonts are specified in ~/.Xdefaults

The selections in obconf adjust the fonts in the openbox right-click menu, window titles and pop-up messages.

Usually dpi does not refer to fonts but rather the density of the screen pixels.
