Yes, man is also used to represent human of all genders, in some cases, but in this case, "isn't he a person" and "isn't he a man" are far different. The later is not for the Russian sentence, which will be "Он не мужчина?" if "man". Scenario may be this; normally a human being (человек) stands on two legs. There's one who looks like a human being, but stands on 4 legs. Or, a human being has emotion, but there's one without any kind of emotion. Someone asks, "isn't he a person?". Anyway, "Isn't he (a) human (being)?" will better match it.
