Set the tiles on a flat surface, look at how much higher the center of the tile is, if you do a brick pattern you will have that much lippage between tiles. We can't tell how much of a bow there is per tile when you have them quick clamped together

On the skinny long ceramic tiles like that its frequently excessive. I'm setting 3x12 on a shower right now and some tiles are 3/16" higher in the center, the things look like bananas.

Next consider your lighting, if you've got much light going straight down the wall (undercab lighting at the back of the cabinet carcass closest to wall) this is going to amplify the lippage. When i have seen people try to do a standard brick design on those tiles it usually looks poor unless there is zero cricital light.
