Scales in performance monitor, Windows server.

I'm trying to see how the server performs with different counters. But each counter has different scale.

For example, disk counters (read/write/transfer) 0.01
Memory Page/sec 1.0
Disk Queue Length 100.0
When I put these all in one monitor, then the left scale of the graph shows 0-100. Does it mean that their scale is translated to 100% scale and shows relatively? If then, why do they have different scales if it will shows as just % scale in the monitor?
By looking at below image, Disk Read never falls under 40%, I don't know if it's because of scale problem or disk having problem with performance. What do you see there?

    you seem to have interpretation of the scaling correct

    so your average disk queue is roughly 40  .. rather high
