Yes.  The -dpi command-line argument takes precedence over all others. 
DisplaySize is used next.  That is exactly why I think all distros that
use -dpi in the hidden/"not for users to change" scripts they use to
start X are broken--because they make it near impossible for an
unsuspecting user to set the DisplaySize/DPI.
