You are having unit conversion issues. When you put in ".125" without any units, ID assumed you meant picas (your default unit must be set to that) and it converted that to 0p1.5— which is 0 picas+1.5 points (these are old typesetting measurement units). it is always safer to put in the units as well as the values.... type in ".125 pt"

That being said, .125 pt is a very odd distance for an offset ( its an incredibly small distance). I would have expected it to be .125in—the same with the bleed and slug distance. You may want to double-check with your printer.
