Assuming that 1000 impressions cost you $10 (CPM = $1), and one click costs you $0.50 (CPC = $0.50), then CTR is 0.2%.

If your CTR is above 0.2%, you should consider billing in the CPM model. Remember that this is not a rule that will work every time. Each time, you must consider the desired result and the campaign goals set.
