With my skills(I am a 12 Year old) It would take me 3 hours to build( I don bother to sort.)
Build speed depends very much on your ability as a builder to understand instructions, organize the pieces in advance, and pick & place those pieces in the right position in your build. Additionally, the complexity of the set (simple versus complex building techniques, e.g. SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques are considered complex) might make a similar ...
There is a age limit because some sets are more advanced than others, and they contain some pieces(choking hazard).

I am using LEGO Mindstorms with university students and adults. Cynics call our robots 'toys' but the computational thinking that goes into my students' solutions is quite complex. And I have challenged cynical programmers to a LEGO robot duel with my students. They declined! Mindstorms should be no age range.
The complexity of the model and the expected time to complete it will increase with the recommended age. Lower aged sets, like the Juniors line, feature builds that rely heavily on standard stacking and more basic bricks. As the age recommendation goes up, you'll see more advanced building techniques such as offset stacking (think stair stacking), studs ...
