Note that gnuplot*font is not listed in the gnuplot man page.
The gnuplot man page says that one can use the options

   -fn font, -font font
       Either option specifies the font to use for displaying text.

as described in the X man page (the gnuplot man page says X(1), but
under Debian this is X(7x)), but this doesn't work either. I've tried

  gnuplot -fn -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-130-75-75-c-70-iso10646-1

The font is taken into account (this one is bigger than normal), but
the encoding is incorrect. IMHO, this is really a bug in gnuplot.
