Answer

This default screen size allows for 21 characters across the screen and 14 lines of characters vertically. Wavelink 5250 emulation allows for 24 rows and 80 columns to be displayed with scrolling.

By default, the font on the terminal is Courier New at 12 points and Normal.  This results in a screen size that allows 21 characters across the screen and 14 lines of characters vertically to display without scrolling.  Changing the font size can allow more data to be shown on the display area.
