Title says it all, how do you know if you're considered above average or even hot in your looks? Without people telling you so.

This is very, very difficult to know and depends on what you see as average (the average of your social/socioeconomic circle, your local area, or your entire country?)
You sort of know when people you find average and above average are looking at you/flirting with you/dating you sometimes (it helps if you don't like/know their personality so you know they're actually looking at you and it's not just wishful thinking on your part). Also maybe opposite-gender friends start flirting with you (more than with other friends) when they drink alcohol.0

It completely depends where you live.
I know I am not average looking in the UK because I am half italian and half japanese. I also happen to keep myself in shape in an unhealthy western country. I get stared at a lot and called beautiful by many strangers in the streets. I am one of the beauty ideals over here.
But when I went to California; yes I got hit on but there wasn't the same admiration because they are used to girls like me. I didn't stand out at all and it was refreshing. I felt more comfortable going on a run and shopping by myself.
Its all about context.0
