That's for all of them. Individual fonts are reasonably and typically sized. Bear in mind, having these many more glyphs for so many languages does require them to be bigger.

1. On the emjoi's fonts there's "Raised Hand With Part Between Middle And Ring Fingers" - WhyTF is that not called "live long and prosper"? Some fonts are described by how they look while others are described by what they mean. A bit inconsistent but I guess that's more of a Unicode consortium issue.
2. Some of the hand emoji's like "White Left Pointing Backhand Index" are all called "white..." even though they've clearly done the race/skin tone colour spectrum ala whatsapp.
2b. The colours are a second unicode code (emoji modifier sequence) on the emoji ranging from U+1F3FB (white/pale) to 1F3FF (black/dark). (Btw, that's counter intuitive to programmers since RGB colour codes have "#00" being dark and "#FF" being light.) P.S. I haven't decided if the skin colour aspect of emoji's is racist or not. There may be some people who found the default yellow emoji's racist.
Names of symbols such as BLACK MEDIUM SQUARE or WHITE MEDIUM SQUARE are not meant to indicate that the corresponding character must be presented in black or white, respectively; rather, the use of “black” and “white” in the names is generally just to contrast filled versus outline shapes, or a darker color fill versus a lighter color fill. Similarly, in other symbols such as the hands U+261A BLACK LEFT POINTING INDEX and U+261C WHITE LEFT POINTING INDEX, the words “white” and “black” also refer to outlined versus filled, and do not indicate skin color.
General-purpose emoji for people and body parts should also not be given overly specific images: the general recommendation is to be as neutral as possible regarding race, ethnicity, and gender. Thus for the character U+1F777 CONSTRUCTION WORKER, the recommendation is to use a neutral graphic like (with an orange skin tone) instead of an overly specific image like (with a light skin tone). This includes the emoji modifier base characters listed in Sample Emoji Modifier Bases. The emoji modifiers allow for variations in skin tone to be expressed.
