A distance of 2 miles should take around 30 minutes. 1 mile will take around 14 minutes, while 0.8 miles will take around 11 minutes.
As a general rule, the faster you go, the more calories you will burn exponentially since your body uses more energy to go faster. At a moderate speed per hour you will burn less calories than walking at a faster rate, e.g. a moderate to fast pace.
