I think the word "aika" must be used here: "Meillä on melkein kolme minuuttia aikaa"

    I don't think it is necessary.

    "Onko meillä vielä paljon aikaa? Joo, meillä on melkein kolme minuuttia." Do we have a lot of time? Yeah, we have almost three minutes. Adding time to the last sentence in either language makes it only cumbersome, I think.

    Similarly you can say "we have almost three kilos [of corn]." "Meillä on melkein kolme kiloa [maissia]."

    I don't think it's a must, but it would still be a fine translation and should be accepted as a correct translation, if it isn't already.
