This is easily reproducible by adding a label to print composer layout in a given font, e.g. Arial 10. After exporting to SVG and opening in Inkscape, the font is specified as Arial 12,398 there.

Export to image seems to preserve the correct font size.

Hello, bug triage...

on QGIS 2.13 master, the SVG conversion of a label in DejaVu Sans 10 gives a DejaVu Sans 9,9188 in Inkscape which seems correct, isn't it ?

Yes, the font size seems correct now. Thanks for checking!
