Bug Description

The shortcut hint is not properly scaled in HiDPI monitors

[Test case]
1. From Unity Control Center -> Displays -> Change the monitor scaling to somewhat
   different from 1.0 (might be both bigger and smaller, your choice; but scaling down is
   recommended if your monitor has a small resolution or next point will fail).
2. Hold Super and keep it pressed unless the shortcut hint won't show up
   (note: this might not happen if the monitor resolution is not big enough to contain
   all the shortcuts; see point above)
3. The shortcuts view and all its text should be scaled to match the defined monitor
   scaling factor.
   In Multi-monitor scenario it should match the scaling factor of the monitor where the
   view opens (so where the mouse is).

[Regression potential]
The potential of regression is basically none, since we just moved from fixed sizes to relative sizes and unless the scale value is set to an invalid value, this should work as it happens in other unity views that do support scaling currently.
