> but am still unclear as to what that timeout does.

On shutdown we use the following command for Vms:

# qm shutdown <vmid> --timeout <timeout>

This first sends an ACPI shutdown request to the VM. Normally
The VM shut down normally and we can continue stopping other VMs.

But sometime shutdown hangs, for example when ACPI shutdown is not allowed.
Then we simply kill the VM after <timeout> seconds.
