    I'm afraid this makes no sense whatever.
    The word "chronology" has a Greek root khronos=time. Chronology cannot have a "duration", that's just silly.
    Besides, it is impossible to give give a definition of duration without first invoking time - "it lasted 10 minutes", say. The word makes no sense otherwise.
    Then you finally flip - how can chronology have a "speed"? That's plain silly

    Now you know the torment we have to endure when he drivels on about cell biology or biochemistry.

    I used the common definition of "chronology" in context of duration and the emergence of time.
    Related fields[edit]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology

    Where does this not have anything to do with the measurement and recording of emergent time as a result of duration of a chronology (as compared to speed)?

    Time and Speed exists, but not in the manner you think.
    In science something "exists" as soon as the definition fit to the observation.
    If it is persistent, you can share your definition and all scientist can aprove it by observing the same.

    Perhaps you mean : Is there some undefined underlying phenomena that is the cause that all phenomena do not appear at once ?
