So, 1 minute in the realworld may be like a 1 hour in the gameworld. The sun can be seen to move across the sky, although the characters must move in slow motion to make up for it.
Maybe I misunderstood the meaning of the above statement, but I'll clarify anyway:

Buff/spell durations are listed in real time. If a spell lasts 1 turn, it will last 60 seconds in real life. A spell cast by a 20th level caster that lasts 1 round per level will last 20 rounds = 2 turns = 120 seconds in real life.

120 seconds of in-game time would be over before you could snap your fingers.

In-game time is never actually used for anything beyond deciding day/night cycle as far as I know (day/night cycle is used in certain buffs/spells/racial traits/etc).

At least that's how I recall it.
