You will find some hints on this questions in:

Dubois/Prade, Properties of Measueres of Information in Evidence and
Possibility Theories, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, Vol. 24 (1987),
p.161-182.

Dubois/Prade, Fuzzy Sets, probability and measurement, European
Journal of Operational Research, Vol. 40 (1989), p.135-154.
