You can use xticklabel=\pgfmathprintnumber{\tick}\,\%. xticklabel defines the code used for printing the tick labels, and \tick contains the current tick value.

since the tick labels are typeset using the maths fonts, if one uses a slightly different font due to using unicode-math, it might be more appropriate to use xticklabel=\pgfmathprintnumber{\tick}\(\,\%\). – ArTourter Jan 5 '13 at 4:39
