Hi all,
Thanks for all the replies,

I, after going through couple of webpages, figured out this by trail using, M-x describe-face 
Family: DejaVu Sans Mono
       Foundry: unknown
         Width: normal
        Height: 121
        Weight: normal
         Slant: normal
    Foreground: black
    Background: white
     Underline: nil
      Overline: nil
Strike-through: nil
Box: nil
       Inverse: nil
       Stipple: nil
          Font: #<font-object -unknown-DejaVu Sans Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1>
       Fontset: -unknown-DejaVu Sans Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-m-0-fontset-startup
       Inherit: unspecified (I think by default this is nil)

I don't know about what the default font is on different systems, but
this is the line I'm using to configure the default face (I'm also on

 (set-face-attribute 'default nil :height 110 :family "DejaVu Sans Mono")
