does it mean tall enough or too tall for his age?

Nothing of the sort; it simply means he's tall compared to what you'd expect of someone his age, i.e. he's tall for a twelve years old.

Even though this was not what was said, if I put (which I did) this, would it be correct to say: "Ha dodici anni e alto per la sua eta"...as in, He is twelve years old and tall for his age.
