As far as I'm aware, height doesn't only helps with keep at bay rolls, but it also brings additional damage on fall. Since even the smallest trolls are taller than your average puke/zorc, you will nearly never get kept at bay by spear users, regardless of height. The fall damage difference is not that great either, so if you are not going to use stabbing weapons, i wouldn't really bother rolling a tall troll, just go with whatever height you get.
Trolls clad in metals are more of an edge scenario, where you want to tank for xp train or whatnot, but with healing up and troll's very good defence, you can tank just fine in plains. That, and being able to get yourself nosize fullset of fine metals makes it not worth bothering to height roll.
