You can send it in as total seconds like: 1,10, 70,100 and so on Custom Metric Types

Custom metrics with a type of Integer or Time should be sent using integers, while custom metrics with a type of Currency may be sent as fixed decimal values appropriate to the local currency.

Time is number of seconds (but it appears as HH : MM : SS in your GA reports)

If i am misunderstanding your question, sorry. however from the help docs.. 

  1. From the Formatting Type dropdown, select an Integer, Currency, or Time.
    An integer can be any number. The currency type will match the view settings (i.e., USD, Yen, etc.) and should be entered as a decimal number. Specify time in seconds, but it appears as hh:mm:ss in your reports.
