I totally missed AV_OPT_TYPE_DURATION, which makes this quite obvious
(I do know a bit of av_opts). Sorry!

Perhaps drop "(seconds)", as "ffmpeg -h full" will mark it as
"<duration>". And the texi source could refer to duration syntax, as
often expressed thus:
as @ref{time duration syntax,,the Time duration section in the ffmpeg-utils(1) manual,ffmpeg-utils}
