Nowadays Theme class is also exposed in C++ as SilicaTheme:

PKGCONFIG += sailfishsilica
INCLUDEPATH += /usr/include/libsailfishsilica
#include <silicatheme.h>
SilicaTheme theme;
qreal pixelRatio = theme.pixelRatio();

It is quite new addition, created pull request to allow it for Store apps:

In theory you could use that to scale application's SVGs on device to target pixel ratio as post-install step, unfortunately it is ran as root and thus cannot be allowed for Store apps. Then you wouldn't need to hardcode the pixel ratios to build time scripts. I'll dig deeper to see what we could do there.

It seems that "/desktop/sailfish/silica/theme_icon_subdir" entry doesn't
exists, but "/desktop/sailfish/silica/theme_pixel_ratio" is ok and I
will stick to it.
