When the duration field is blank, the process instance will not be automatically terminated.

When a value is entered, the process will get terminated after the specified amount of time. That time can be calculated from the process start by selecting "Activation" in the "Relative to" section. Or it can be calculated from the last time the process was updated by selecting "Proccess Update" in the "Relative to" section allowing to clean inactive processes.
