I need to know because I'm building an ao in firestorm and I need to know for how long each of my standing animations should cycle. Where does it say how long the animations are?

I'm not sure but as far as I know, the only way is to run the animation and take the time before it repeats.

Standing and walking animations for AOs are pretty much standardized to 20 seconds though and it's very rare to find some that are longer or shorter

If you click on the properties of the animation, creators will many times put the length of time in the description or the name of an animation

Unless a third-party viewer has specifically made that information available, there's no way to definitely conclude the exact duration of an animation.

What exactly are you making? The duration of the animation shouldn't matter for a regular AO.

When you upload an animation into SL from your computer it shows the length of time in seconds but that is only see by the uploader. 

It doesn't really matter what duration you choose because every standing animation is (or should be) designed to loop continuously. If you set the AO to run stand animations for 50 seconds and you load a 20 second stand and a 25 second stand then the first animation will loop 2.5 times and the second will loop 2 times.
