This will retrieve the numerical ID of the default face on frame F:

  int id = lookup_basic_face (F, DEFAULT_FACE_ID);

lookup_basic_face consults f_Vface_remapping_alist.  If the value of
id above is different from DEFAULT_FACE_ID, that means the default
face was remapped.  Then you can get the remapped face like this:

  struct face *face = FACE_FROM_ID (F, id);

Now the font of the face is available as

  struct font *font = face->font;

And I think FONT_WIDTH (font) will give you the width you want to use

Again, this is 100% untested.  Good luck!
