[torqueusers] Increase walltime to 10 days

Wall time is the maximum amount of time a job should execute before  
being killed by the scheduler. This is to prevent programs that  
either run out of control, or who never exit from consuming all  
system resources. In your submit file, you have a line like:

## One Hour
#PBS -l walltime=1:00:00

The format for walltime is:  HH:MM:SS

So for 10 days, you would have

## Ten Days = 240 Hours
#PBS -l walltime=240:00:00

This site has a good explanation of the torque / PBS submit file.


Hope that helps,
