How to set the length of minortick? The minortick seems to change with the length setting of the tick.

Two values can be set for "ticklength" in the edit box. For example "0.05,0.1". The former indicates the length of the main tick, and what does the latter indicate? How to customize the length of minortick?

"... what does the latter indicate?"
Tick mark length, specified as a two-element vector of the form [2Dlength 3Dlength]. The first element is the tick mark length in 2-D views and the second element is the tick mark length in 3-D views. Specify the values in units normalized relative to the longest of the visible x-axis, y-axis, or z-axis lines.

There is no direct control over tick-length of the minor ticks. Though, it is proportional to the length of the major tick.

Thanks for your reply, it's clear to me.
How to adjust the ratio of maintick to minortick? It seems to be fixed to a certain value.

Yes, the ratio is fixed (seems to be 1:2), and can not be adjusted.
You could try using annotation or text or line to make minor ticks of custom length but that might not be satisfactory.
