That's right! If "hemera" were meant to be translated as a "time", then as per the prior page a "hemera" or "time" would indicate 1,000 years, per 2Peter 3:8.

2Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one "hemera" [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one "hemera".

Now Daniel 12:7 indicates that an additional factor of "time, times, and an half" would have to be applied to that 1,000 years.

(KVJ) Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which [was] upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that [it shall be] for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these [things] shall be finished.

While most Christians have been taught the Hebrew idiom "time, times, and an half" indicates a factor of 3-1/2, some Hebrew scholars and Messianic Jews recognize it as a different factor. What multiple is suggested by this Hebrew idiom according to the Hebrew scholars at for Daniel 12:7 at this link?
