It seems like percentages are not allowed. They are not mentioned in the
CALS table specification:

COLWIDTH: Either proportional measure of the form number*, i.e., "5*" for 5
times the proportion, or "*" (which is equivalent to "1*"); fixed measure,
i.e., 2pt for 2 point, 3pi for 3 pica; or mixed measure, i.e., 2*+3pt.
Coefficients are positive integers or fixed point numbers.
