It's reality.

He doesn't need to see the top fall over. He knows it's real. It's why he couldn't stay in limbo with Mal any longer, it's why he could let go of her and his guilt, it's why seeing his kids in limbo would never be enough for him. Dreaming is no substitute...not for Cobb.

He knows he's in reality because he remembers how he got to the house. That's what the whole long trip through the airport and meeting up with Miles is about. He doesn't just find himself at his in-laws' house; he "remembers how he got there".

So...we don't see the top fall over because we don't need to, either...

There we go. Now I don't have to post some big in-depth treatise on why the movie ends in reality. If you think the above quote is what happened, you don't really feel the need to articulate your beliefs beyond voting "Reality" - thus the disparity in posts to votes.
