The font variation settings are provided as multiple tag-values pairs.

For example, bold italic font may have following font variation settings: 'wght' 700, 'slnt' -12 In this case, AFont_getAxisCount returns 2 and AFont_getAxisTag and AFont_getAxisValue will return following values.

AFont* font = AFontIterator_next(ite);

// Returns the number of axes
AFont_getAxisCount(font);  // Returns 2

// Returns the tag-value pair for the first axis.
AFont_getAxisTag(font, 0);  // Returns 'wght'(0x77676874)
