Near the bottom of the page it says: "By default, a lease is specified in minutes, so the default lease time expires after 10 hours, and the maximum lease time is 120 hours."

By default, a lease is specified in seconds, so the default lease time expires after 10 minutes, and the maximum lease time is 120 minutes.
