wording on time and speed

Hi designers,

We have a software that allow user to change their preference on how
fast they want a certain things to show up. The current UI is a
slider with measurement units as milliseconds. e.g. , 500 msec. It's
too technically precise to be understood. I'm thinking to change it
to some simple texts, such as 0.5 second, immediate, or instant.

I wonder if there is some guideline or recommendation of the words
that are better understandable for users?
