Have a look at:
,-----[ C-h v ess-help-frame-alist RET ]
| ess-help-frame-alist is a variable defined in `ess-cust.el'.
| Its value is shown below.
| *Alist of frame parameters used to create help frames.
| This defaults to `special-display-frame-alist' and is used only when
| the variable `ess-help-own-frame' is non-nil.
| You can customize this variable or set it in your initialization file.
| ((height . 50)
| (width . 90)
| (unsplittable . t)
| (tool-bar-lines . 0)
| (menu-bar-lines . 0)
| (font . "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-11")
| (top . 0)
| (left . 0)
| (foreground-color . "wheat")
| (background-color . "gray25"))
Hope it helps,
