I think you can't read numbers, but just characters.
You just have to "build" the numbers from the digits yourself.

If you think of it, the ascii codes of numbers are 0x30 - 0x39, so you get the value of the digit by subtracting the ascii code of '0' (=0x30) from the character.

in a sort of pseudocode

xor bx,bx ; result = 0
  read ax ; get digit
  cmpi ax 0x30 ; less than '0'
  jlt done
  cmpi ax 0x39 ; greater than '9'
  jgt done

  mul bx, 10 ; result = result * 10
  subi ax, 0x30
  add bx, ax ; result = result +m new digit
  jmp loop

  ; return bx
