It seems like octave-mode doesn't expose an interface to modify this.
But... This. Is. Emacs. We'll customise it whether it wants to or not.

You could put something like this in your .emacs:

     (eval-after-load 'octave-mode
       (modify-syntax-entry ?\% " " octave-mode-syntax-table) )

That will make octave-mode tread % as if were a whitespace character.
Look at modify-syntax-entry's docstring (C-h f modify-syntax-entry
<RET>) for other possible things you could want octave-mode to do with

I'm not exactly sure what are you doing with % other than comments or
why you want to do this, but there you go.
