The contents of the RTP stream is a certain amount of speech samples, which, depending on the sample clock, represents a certain duration of speech. The codec used for the encoding of the speech defines the sample clock (in case of G.711 an 8 kHz clock), so you can easily calculate the duration through the sizes of the packets and the sample clock.

I was able to understand, Thanks for your explanation. I took duration to mean "delay time".
