Is there a way to backup/restore all the settings for EV4?

I have noticed that they must all be saved locally because if you change user account then all the settings are retained.

I want to completely duplicate an EV4 set-up onto another identical tablet so this would massively simplify the process. I could even back-up the aerodata then it doesn't need downloading again.

It depends a lot on platform, not all platforms allow access to the datafiles in the same easy manner. For android it also depends a lot on what android version you are using. Android 10 and Android 11 restrict file access much more then pervious versions, and only a few file explorers support this now (they must be specially approved by Google I believe). On our own Android devices I use X-plore, that works. 

Then with such a file explorer you can browse to /Android/data/com.pocketfms.easyvfr4/files and in theory you should be able to copy all files and subdirectories there to another device. Please realise some settings are screen resolution dependent, so in general I would do this only if both the source and destination devices are identical.
