The Unicode Standard Version 3.0 p165 says:
"Unifications. The IPA symbols are unified as much as possible with other
letters, albeit not with nonletter symbols like U+222B ∫ INTEGRAL".
So, if you don't find it in the IPA block you should look not for a slashed
circle or slashed zero, but for a slashed letter o.
And indeed, if we look at U+00F8 LATIN SMALL LETTER O WITH STROKE ø, the
book says that it is used in Danish, Norwegian, Faroese, and IPA
