I would allow a good 15 minutes. The walk is easy enough, though depending on time of day could be very busy with shoppers and workers.

It's free up to a daily limit, after which you pay. We downloaded a few films and a TV series for our onward travel, that took us over the free limit. I'd say for day to day use you'll not pay anything.
