Certainly at least 100K. Even with the lower regen on a LEAF I find it surprising for lower milage replacements, certainly no one should need rotors, that should be a lifetime part on a LEAF.
the amount of grit and crap on the roads in Estonia in the winter is my guess for why these wear out more quickly. Though i don't have good examples from the midwest which get similar a climate. Or the pads are just super soft so the rotors don't wear and the pads do instead.
i'll measure mine tonight for comparisons sake, but did you check rockauto.co.uk, i had a relative order from there to Estonia a few years ago and i think it worked fine. it even shows pad dimensions in some of the pics.

edit, pics from mine as promised:
pad is 106mm tall which lines up exactly with what rockauto wants to sell.
