Probably the only solution is to use QProxyStyle class.
There's no QProxyStyle class in Qt4/Qt5 C bindings and to fix this 
problem it should be implemented with it's overrides.
QProxyStyle can return any size for PM_SmallIconSize, but in that case 
we should know what's the current size of "normal" icons in LCL.
