are you sure? because dcolumn works in mathmode, thus it is using the 
math font instead not the text font. It might be a limitation of 
dcolumn, so I'd recommend that you had a look at the siunitx package, 
which apart from providing unit, also provides a feature similar to 
dcolumn but much more configurable, and I think I saw a section in the 
manual that solved your problem.
