The devscripts ones are only settable in the devscripts config file.
The dpkg one is an environment variable:
I don't think changing the behavior of dpkg-buildpackage to defer to
GnuPG's default-key would be a good idea. Using the changelog address
as the default value seems saner to me, as that should in principle
pick the correct key in most cases. Also changing this would probably
break far many setups, which I'm not looking forward to.

I'd recommend adding support for DEB_SIGN_KEYID as an environment
variable in other tools. :)
