You need to increase the pool allowed for your containers. To do this, you will need to remove your var/lib/docker which will destroy all your containers and images.
Does this solve your issue? Also, try stopping docker processes, start docker again, and see if you can remove the images
Devicemapper running out of space can be very tricky indeed; We're tracking issues around this in #20272.
For Docker 1.11, there's a new option to specify a minimum amount of free space to be kept, and would prevent you from arriving in this situation; see #20786
