Using some variation on graphics parameter cex, depending if the `axis
labels' are the numbers or the x/ylab= labels.

However, more likely your device is set up wrongly.  Take a look at
its parameters, which may include pointsize, for example.

To help more we need to know

1) the details of your system

2) what you used to get the plot

3) what exactly is the problem.
