    15/10 game usually can last about 25 minutes.  5 rounds can last about slighty over than 2 hours.  You might want to make it 2 hours 30 minutes.

    About 35 minutes a round is more realistic. 
    a 5 round 15 / 0 tournament is about 3 hours long.

    Let's say that at the end of a 40-moves long game (the longest per round), both players have about 3 minutes.

    24min + 80×10sec (800sec = 13min) = 37min.

    37min × 5 = 185min = 3h 5min

    Seriously, 3 hours?  I have never played one that long.  Anyway, 3 hours for 5 rounds should be safe.

    plus 10-15 min time interval after each game for the pairings and board placements.
