A millimeter, as almost every 12 inch ruler has centimeters and millimeters on the opposite side of where inches are marked.

It depends on the measuring instrument (tape or ruler) being used. Some are marked in 1/8 inch, some in 1/10 inch, some in 1/16 inch and, rarely for such long rulers, 1/32 inch.

Well, .125 is 1/8 of an inch. If the tape measure is marked in sixteenths, 1/8 would be the 2nd line from the beginning of an inch. Then estimate or eyeball 1/4 of the way to the next line and that is rougly .15 on a tape measure. This is how I would figure this out. If someone knows a better way, please share.
