At none or all ;-)  With setmainfont you are loading the font at all
sizes.

The default size used at begin document depends on the documentclass
which defines a \normalsize command, but you can later on change to
what ever you want.

Imho it doesn't make much sense to set as default font a bold
italic. Setup up the normal font and use \bfseries/\textbf and
\itshape/\textit to switch to the bold italic.

\documentclass[fontsize=14pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmainfont{Noto Serif}

\begin{document}

blalb {\bfseries blbl \itshape blbl}%14pt

{\fontsize{1cm}{1.2cm}\selectfont Blabla\par} %1cm

\end{document}
