Auction duration is used to configure 3 auction periods: 1. `duration > 0`, `volume == 0`: The auction will last for at least N seconds 2. `duration == 0`, `volume > 0`: The auction will end once the given volume will match at uncrossing 3. `duration > 0`, `volume > 0`: The auction will take at least N seconds, but can end sooner if the market can trade a certain volume
