From the text:

"...a tall man, with a long brown beard and a great black hat, which seemed to hide his face from us. I could only see the gleam of a pair of very bright eyes, which seemed red in the lamplight, as he turned to us."

"As he spoke he smiled, and the lamplight fell on a hardlooking mouth, with very red lips and sharp-looking teeth, as white as ivory."

We can tell from the strangeness of the driver's, and the fact that Jonathan's companions crossed themselves at the sight of him, the coachman had an otherworldly appearance. The other passengers and the driver were afraid of him. The fact that they all crossed themselves would deem the stranger a kind of devil.
