a manager or operator can set a higher wallclock limit by using qalter:

qalter -l walltime=XXX:XX:XX <job_number>

a regular user can only lower the wallclock limit, since this has
potential for abuse (like setting artificially low walltimes to fit
into backfill spots and then increase the wallclock limit after the
job is started)
