In CJK locale, there are some dual-width fonts.
When start weston terminal in CJK locale, the glyph will occupy
many empty space.
I changed to use the average ASCII glyph width instead of
the maximum glyph width, like vte project.

Peng Wu (2):
  As some CJK fonts are dual-width, use the average width of ASCII
    glyphs instead of the max_x_advance of the font, just like the
    vte project.
  Some CJK glyphs are wide, which occupy two columns. If the glyph
    is wide, then use two columns instead of one.
