You should be able to let X chose the correct DPI for each display, if
it correctly detects the display size. Forcing the DPI is not a good
solution anyway.

Beeing able to force DPI differently on each display could be helpful,
but I'm not sure it's even doable. The Xfce setting acts on xrdb stuff,
which may not be display-dependant.

Look at xrandr, if you want to manually tune DPI on each display (which
is not recommended, as I said)
