You should be able to approximate that by multiplying the
character-unit dimensions by the pixel size of the default face's
font.  The result might be a few pixels off, but I don't see that as a
grave problem, at least not until we have better facilities.

It's good enough for me, because currently I have to restore my frames
manually every time I quit and restart Emacs for some reason.
