Edit /etc/X11/Xserver

        "GTA01" | "GTA02")
                ARGS="$ARGS -dpi 285 -screen 480x640 -hide-cursor -root-ppm /usr/share/pixmaps/xsplash-vga.ppm vt1" ;;

Change '285' to whatever you like.
Then restart the X server.
  /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop
  /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm start

Obviously it will cause local apps to behave differently, so it might
not end up being what you want.
