I would recommend to keep default tone length at least at 70 ms.
Justification is that it should be long enough to loose a packet of G.711
audio (which normally is no more then 30 ms long) and still be long enough
to be recognized.

This being said, I do not see any reason to reduce default 100 ms tone
duration. The limitation in Q.24 is on the max rate. There no harm at
sending DTMF digits at a lower rates.
