So 'perf trace' has a similar option:

[acme@zoo linux]$ perf trace --help
--duration <float>
show only events with duration > N.M ms

While you used:

I prefer 'duration', and haven't assigned a single letter to it, they
are scarce and we have shell long option completion, what do you think?

The term was chosen, for 'perf trace' on the original patchset:
