Salam, would the Guardian Jurist (faqih) of an Islamic state like Iran be the leader of all the Muslims or just the Muslims living in the country he governs? 

The concept of Wilayat al-Faqih differs from one Marja to another. So there's no single answer I believe.

I believe his view was that all Muslims should follow the political rulings (hukms) that the Waleeh al Faqeeh issues to them.

There are things that the Waleeh al Faqeeh doesn’t have control over for example personal fish issues like praying and fasting generally speaking. Khomeini (رضي الله عنه) also rules it haram for a Waleeh al Faqeeh to initiate jihad.
