From the article: "In retrospect, I think our test was a bit longer and more difficult than ideal. If I were to do this over again, I would design the test to take about 4 hours."

But the test time is actually unbounded, although of course they're hovering over you with a stopwatch.

Which means the candidate will be under incredible stress still, no matter what the supposed target time is.
