This is not reasonable, many people use emacs on local ttys (e.g., on
the linux console or in an xterm).  The important variable is where
you're logged in from, not that you're using emacs in tty mode, and is
highly user-dependent.

If you only use a tty when logged in over a modem, then you could always
put something like

    (when (null window-system)
      (setq-default isearch-lazy-highlight-initial-delay 5))

in your .emacs file.
