Is this an idiomatic expression for a very small amount of time?

Yes. 'One small minute' is not a neat translation, really. 'Just a moment', 'a moment', 'in just a bit', etc, might be better idiomatic translations, depending on what the context was.

    This is a common expression, usually used with exasperation. eg, stop pestering and just give me one little minute, will you?

    It is the start of the opening line of a well-known poem, Cofio, by a very famous poet, Waldo Williams, from Pembrokeshire - here
