system_time is declared in boost/thread/thread_time.hpp: it is a typedef to
boost::posix_time::ptime from the date-time library.
TimeDuration is any boost date-time
duration. e.g. boost::posix_time::milliseconds
You are not the only person to notice the missing docs for the timeout
stuff. It's on my list of things to add.
