Those are points, not pixels.

To me it looks like an issue with your font's metrics. In the glyph overview the displayed glyphs are tiny compared to the overview cells (compare to the incomplete © symbol), and the line-spacing in the Preview Toolbar is excessive. Some fonts like Cambria Maths require that, but most do not.

Try going to Font Properties, Metrics, and select Maximum, Calculate. That should enlarge all of the glyphs in your font at a given point size.

To check for the highest and lowest glyph extents, go to Font Information, Y Max and Y Min, and double-click to locate glyphs that may be higher or lower than they should be.

Yep, that was it.
Thank you!
