I don't think I've given an exact figure for the Almean day; but it's much less than the 26.7 hours that would be needed to make the year the same length. I don't really worry about converting years, since Almean time doesn't run in parallel with ours.
That was my point in bringing it up, since the original question was about whether a length of time given in the Historical Atlas was reasonable for people to make a certain technological leap. I understand what you mean about time not running parallel, I just wanted to point it out as something to consider when people are reading the Atlas, and thinking about how long things took.
