Hard to say what the limit on the mileage is. It's all a matter of personal preference really. A lot of variables involved that one may consider, higher mileage does not neccessarily equate to a worse vehicle. Yes, some more wear in most cases, but some higher mileage vehicles are much better maintained and operate better than some with lower mileage and not taken care of. It also depends on what years you're looking at as well. A lot of things to take into consideration, not just the mileage.
The list you came up with are the exact cars that I tried out (but I had a few more on the list as well) before I ended up buying my TL.
Pros: Very stylish, love the exhaust sound, handles nicely, power is definitely there when needed.
Cons: Quite heavy on gas, interior feels cheap (or at least I felt so), very little trunk space (for the coupe anyway), a lot of blind spots.
Pros: Looks nice on the exterior & interior. Fit and finish of the interior is decent to good. A bit better on fuel than the other 2 on your list.
Cons: If you're bigger than 5'5" it's a pretty tight fit in there. I'm about 6'0" and 185lbs and I fit in there, but the surroundings felt tight. Handling isn't as nice as the G35. Power doesn't feel as "raw" or instantly available. Blind spots are moreso when compared to the TL.
Cons: Not the best on gas of the 3, but not the worse either (G35 is worse). Interior is very roomy, but fit and finish isn't as "nice" as the IS250. Leather seats are the shiny type of leather (I dunno, I'm not a fan of leather in general though).
Pros: Lots of power, Interior and trunk are very roomy, Exterior has a "European" style to it, nice interior guages. I bought the Navi version and it's fully loaded. I enjoy the TL quite a bit actually.
Again, this is all personal preference and a matter of my opinion, so ultimately, you should try them all and pick out your favorite.

For kms, I tend to stick with 20,000km/yr as a general maximum. That's also what most manufacturers use for new car warranties. (Well obviously in a warranty you can do more in a year but it's usually # of years multiplied by 20k per year to get the total km).
