The getHeight() method of net.rim.device.api.ui.Font returns the height in pixels. There a detailed explanation of fonts in the JavaDocs for Font. There is also a getHeight(int arg0) method on Font but it is not documented and therefore not supported. It may return the height in the specified units similar to the derive(int style, int height, int units) method.
