That terminal doesn't come with xmonad; it's xterm [1].

A lot depends on your particular system, but you can try adding the
following to your ~/.Xresources file:

xterm*faceSize: 14

The next xterm you open will hopefully be at a larger size.  Xterm
configuration is unfortunately a somewhat involved topic, though, and
probably beyond the scope of this group.
