It sounds as though you have no space glyph in your font and are seeing
the ttf .notdef character. Simply open the space glyph and move the
width line to an appropriate place.

If you have "traced" the bitmaps, they you have generated a scalable
font. As such it has no inherent size associated with it but can be used
to generate a font of any size.
