That's if you set a unit to patrol while out of base, say, you send your D and E-class submarines to sail in front of Wilhelmshaven, they can patrol for over 200 hours, whereas the short-range craft might have 48 hours. You are ordering them to patrol the selected tile or square for the specified hours.

But if you select area patrol from when the unit is in base, it's not linked to hours. I can let them patrol for weeks, or more, on end, without touching it. "Area patrol" seems to have some other mechanism, I'm certain it relates to distance but can't work out what the measurement is (miles, tiles/squares, etc)
