When a document enters Candidate Recommendation status the W3C issues a
so-called Call for Implementations along with an updated version of the
document that reflects the document's new status and any changes made
during the previous phase. You can check the current status of any
document by following the Latest Version link in the document or through
the Technical Report index at <http://www.w3.org/TR/>. The CSS3 Paged
Media draft has not yet entered Candidate Recommendation status.

There is no typical duration of the CR phase, some documents remain in
that phase for years due to lack of implementations or e.g. technical
problems, others remain there only for a few months. From the CSS index
at http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/current-work you can see how other CSS
drafts have fared so far.
