I would suggest a common duration syntax for better readability and a 
common conversion util function. We can stick to seconds if it is
just a number, but allow fractions for millis etc. So

"1" is 1 second "0.001" is one millisecond, as is "1ms". 
"1.5m" is 90 seconds, as is "1:30m"
"1:15h" is 75 minutes
"2:20:33.1h" is 140 minutes, 33 seconds and 100ms.
"1:60h" is invalid, as is "1:00:00m" and "1:00:00:00" etc.
