space_limit is 0 for at least one row.


how to fix is up to you.  What do you want to be displayed when the space limit is 0?

Put a decode around it (I put 1 but may be wrong)
ROUND((SPACE_USED - SPACE_RECLAIMABLE)/decode(SPACE_LIMIT,0,1,SPACE_LIMIT) * 100, 1)

Or add a condition:
WHERE SPACE_LIMIT > 0
0

WHERE SPACE_LIMIT != 0 AND .....

Another method:
Try this:-

SELECT
    NAME,
    TO_CHAR(SPACE_LIMIT, '999,999,999,999') AS SPACE_LIMIT,
    TO_CHAR(SPACE_LIMIT - SPACE_USED + SPACE_RECLAIMABLE,
    '999,999,999,999') AS SPACE_AVAILABLE,
    DECODE(to_char(PACE_LIMIT),'0','NaN',to_char(ROUND((SPACE_USED - SPACE_RECLAIMABLE)/SPACE_LIMIT * 100, 1)))
    AS PERCENT_FULL
    FROM V$RECOVERY_FILE_DEST;

I haven't ran above SQL, but should work fine.
Before calculating PERCENT_FULL, it will validate if SPACE_LIMIT=0, if it does, then NaN(Not a Number) will be displayed.

To get the proper answer, you need to answer sdstuber's question as to what you want to see in the case where space_limit is zero. Your basic choices are 0, null, space_used minus space_reclaimable, or some message string (which I wouldn't recommend given the numeric nature of the fields).
