Print time estimation

Good morning, I'm trying to figure out what are the lines of code that calculate time printing a piece using Cura 3.4, to estimate the cost of printing. I only want to put a printing cost based on the hours, minutes and seconds it takes to print a piece.
Could someone tell me what are the lines of code or mathematical equation used to calculate time?

Thank you

    Since Cura is opensource, so you could just look around in the code and find it...or just can just use the time estimated and outputted in the top of each gcode file..
