I'm not sure of the gauge... it looks like maybe DK weight yarn. Is 250-275 yards enough for a pair of gloves or mittens? Or should I get one more skein of the yarn (~130 yards) so I have enough to make gloves or mittens?

Probably enough for mittens; I can get a pair in worsted out of 100 yards, and I have big hands. But another skein would certainly make it easier.

If you're worried about running out, just do them tip-to-cuff. You get nicer shaping that way in any case, so it's worth it.
