To my knowledge we cannot influence the font for VMs since that is handled entirely by the guest operating system. Video output is displayed via VNC, and that only gets the raw rendered pixels from the guests video card.

However, you could try setting the console font inside the guest itself:

Thank you Lukas,
I thought that the terminal views were rendered by vnc, so I was thinking that there were some kind parameter to set (maybe to increase the magnifying of the view or something so).Anyway thank you again ;) I will look at your links so I can customize the consoles directly inside of the vms
