This is because the current Emacs refuses to use an
auto-scaled font because it's usually too agree to use for
the editing work. It at first checks the availability of
the specified font (without checking it's auto-scaled or
not), but, later on deciding a font for a face, it lists
fonts matching with family-name and registry-name, then
selects the best one among them. On this selection,
auto-scaled font is refused even if scalable-fonts-allowed
is non-nil. So, in your case the 16-dots font (that is
surely included in terminus font package) is selected.
