There are several packages you can install to fix it. ttf-dejavu works too.

if maintainers cant/want deside which ttf font chromium should install as depend, (even though ttf-dejavu has the best unicode coverage, AFAIK) would be really nice if pacman said that chromium needs a ttf font before it works.

This problem also occurs on a clean install of gnome.
