How is time measured in the kittens-game?

In particular, Winter lasts 100 days, the stock tells me, how long(seconds) my supplies will last, but I've no Idea how many seconds 100 days are.

Time is measured in ticks. In the game, there are 5 ticks per second (or one tick every 200ms), and there are 10 ticks to an in-game day.

This means each day is 2 seconds long in real time. So 100 days will be 200 seconds, or 3 minutes and 20 seconds.

Note: You may experience slight variations in the time depending on the performance of your machine, but on most modern machines and browsers this should be broadly accurate.

Source: being a JavaScript game it is quite easy to look at the code directly to figure this out. If you want to take a look yourself, the main clues for figuring this out are in the calendar.js and game.js files.
