It is certainly possible to perceive a sound with a duration of 10ms (1/100 s) but characteristics such as pitch or timbre will only be resolved by most subjects when the pulse width is within the optimal range (say above 25ms or 1/40 s) and more so when the sound is repeated. Frequency is also a factor as mentioned by Wolfgang above.
