As @clshortfuse says, desktop browsers all respect the user's default font-size, and have for decades. Some pages break, but most are fine.  Is the mobile web so substantially different in this regard?

(That said, if it turns out this is the case, my preferred solution is an `env()` value, not a system font. System fonts are big hammers and very awkward to use, particularly in cases like this where the only thing it's trying to communicate is a font **size**.)
