That's a Chinese font(楷体). When you open a Chinese book(book's language is set to Chinese, most likely your original azw3 will do the trick) kindle will download the font file. It's actually a cramfs image.

Code:
[root@kindle fonts]# ls -l
-rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root      41234432 Jul  6 01:29 zh-Hans.font
[root@kindle fonts]# pwd
/mnt/us/system/fonts

I open a chinese book for a long time,then use 7z extract the file zh_hans.font.It containts only four files:
STKaiBold.ttf,STKaiMedium.ttf,STYuanBold.ttf and STYuanMedium.ttf.

Does 7z (on what OS) properly handle cramfs?
You might not be getting the entire contents.
Better that you just mount it as a cramfs and copy out the contents of the file system tree rather than unpack it.

That's the correct file&content. STKai* is what you're looking for.

The css lists multiple names for compatibility reasons as old kindle/firmware may use different name for the font.

I have copy these files into my Android Mobile.But when i open a epub book,it still inform that cannot find font files:stkai.tff mkai prc.ttf kai.ttf.
Should i rename the STKaiMedium.ttf or STKaiBold.ttf to STKAI.ttf?

ssh to the kindle and do it on there?
or set up a vm/share the files to a friend - upload here (if allowed) - maybe not allowed...

The ttf files must be referenced somewhere in books CSS file(s) using @font-face rule and/or you have to know where does your preferred epub reader Android app expect to find extra/custom fonts, then copy the files there.

Or to make things simple you could embed the font files (using Calibre, first you have to add/install "STKai" font on you Windows or add them just to Calibre) epub itself, for that 1 book. I'm guessing that you Android app support embedded fonts...
