Yes, because frame-width and frame-height return values in units of
the canonical character size.

Then use frame-pixel-width and frame-pixel-height, and divide by
default-font-width and default-font-height to get the results in
columns and lines.

For the echo area and the minibuffer you will have to use hooks,
because switching to another buffer doesn't switch the echo-area or
minibuffer. IOW, there's no separate echo-area/minibuffer for each
