Out library supports three font sizes: small, medium, and large. Small is the normal size, medium is double height, and large is double height and double width.

and what about "define user-defined character", that is described in manual? Isn't it possible by this way?

User-defined characters would be normal (i.e., "small") size. Your only option would be to define bitmaps for really large characters.
