The fontconfig manual describes the syntax for fontconfig names.

Ah, you need to tell xfd that you're using a fontconfig name rather than a 
core font name.  Try:

$ xfd -fa 'fixed-10'

If you want to see the 6x13 font ('fixed' in the default core font list):

$ xfd -fa fixed:pixelsize=13:width=semicondensed
