sono in this sentence is the third person plural form. The question, literally, is "what hours are they?". The subject is "hours", not the person to whom you ask the question.

I thought that "che ora 'e" is "what time is it. "ore" to me would be the plural of "ora", so why is "what hours are they" not acceptable?
