ско́лько вре́мени?

Does it mean both "What time is it?" and "How long?" ?

- Сколько вре́мени ты спал?

Двенадцать часов. Я долго спал, потому что вчера я ездил на экскусию и приехал домой поздно.so here it is asking "How long" not "What time", right?

    In the provided context Сколько времени...? means How long...?, you are right.

    And yes, it can be used as well in the meaning of What time is it?, for example:
    What time is it now? would be Сколько сейчас времени?
