40 minutes @ 3 mph, accepted as the "average walking speed for women".

4 miles an hour is a perfectly acceptable walking speed.

To the OP: It depends very much on the terrain, and what sort of walking it is. If you're walking 2 miles through town, and taking it easy, I wouldn't be surprised if it took 40 minutes. If you're walking up a steep mountain path, it might take a heck of a lot longer. If you're walking on the flat, and deliberately walking at some pace, it could take as little as 20-25 minutes, but any faster and you'd really be walking at some pace and most likely look a little silly.

definitely about 30-40 minutes,
When I was in NYC, 2 miles is nothing on foot.

Took me and a mate to walk 6 miles in just under two hours, albeit across hilly fields and rough terrain

1 Mile to school used to take me 15mins, so half an hour. No more than that I would say.
