would "paljonko aikaa heillä on" be also correct? the original word order sounds weird to my foreign ears

Yes, that word order is correct as well, if not even more neutral.

"just" 8 minutes is wrong?

Doesn't sound natural to me.

it is annoying when some answers will be accepted using a numeric 8 rather than eight. This one didn't. Consistency would be nice.

Funny, sounds almost like "How much time do they have on?." "Only eight minutes."
