Well, if you appear in a room and see no wall the first thing you do is detect (evil, monster, even invisible - whatever you have) and that would normally give you enough information to not be surprised by large rooms.

If you find yourself in the middle of a large pack of ogres and orcs and dont have teleport yet, there are various ways of escaping which arent guaranteed but good enough: use of mapping for orientation, drinking a speed potion, reading phase door multiple times hoping to get closer to an exit and others.

That said, very large rooms share the problem with caves in that they are featureless and there isnt much you can do there. The only consideration is how to get out asap.
