Mites are the biggest pest of avocado leaves but their damage is more like speckling on the leaves, not holes. Outside of course you have caterpillars, snails, grasshoppers and June beetles that leave holes, as well as moth larva. Unless something can get in the window, I'm not finding indoor pests that leave holes. Your typical indoor pests like aphids, mealybugs and scale would be visible on the leaves.
You might try doing some night time investigation with a flashlight and see if you see anything bothering your avocado tree. Another possibility is fungal spots that have dropped out of the leaves, leaving a hole.
You might give your tree a spray with Neem oil, which combats fungus as well as pests. Another option is contacting your local university extension service, who might have more ideas.
