Small perimeter says applied to

Small perimeter says applied to <= 6.5mm radius.  Maybe I'm reading this wrong?

Using "speed" display on sliced part it appears to be diameter?

The 6.5mm size is NOT large enough in certain situations.

Can the 6.5mm (diameter) limit be increased?

To my knowledge this is a hard coded fixed size to slow down printer speed for small holes.
There is still the possibility to compensate with XY Size Compensation in the advanced printer tab, but this setting will also change the outer size in the XY plane.

If you think there is an error in PrusaSlicer or you want to request a new feature to compensate for small holes, I would suggest creating an issue at GitHub that the developers of PR will see.

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

Small perimeters is not just for holes.  It’s applied to any perimeter shorter than the threshold, so could be a small irregular outlined post. 
Whether the tool tip is correct for radius or diameter that just gives a circumference which is the threshold length.

Makes some sense.

I wish the 6.5 mm was adjustable.
