It's very hard to estimate printing time on those terms. Printing time depends on the material, the shape of the model, the infill percentage, the support structure density, and lots of other variables.

Right now I'm printing a model that's about 90mm X 45mm X 40mm with 80% infill and it's going to take about 7 1/2 hours. That same model with a different orientation might take 20% less time, but I need the orientation I'm using in order to get the finish quality I want.
