I will compile Godot from source and I wanted to know how much time does it take to get ready.

It depends on your computer. If you have a good CPU with a decent amount of RAM, it could take 10 to 15 minutes. Btw, if you didn't know, you can use the -j option in scons to make it use many cores as you want on your CPU.

On a Ryzen 5 using a single core it can take between 10 and 15 minutes if compiling from scratch. It takes less if you use multicore compilation in command line argument (-j<numberOfCores>). It takes much less time if you have it compiled already but changed a .cpp file.
With an SSD it might get a little bit faster as well.
