Sorry,
Incomplete original example methinks.

If you change
- <assign var="time" value="now"/>

to
+ <assign var="time" op="-now" fromvar="time"/>

it should work.

--- [ A WORKING EXAMPLE TO DEMONSTRATE (TESTED ;-))] ----

Here's a working sample (assuming AntX is installed in a
directory at ./antx relative to test script):

<project name="test" default="timed-target" basedir=".">
  <property name="jware.antx.defaults.valueuris.flag" value="yes"/>
  <path id="antx.classpath">
    <pathelement location="${basedir}/antx/JWare_apis.jar"/>
    <pathelement location="${basedir}/antx/AntX_tasks.jar"/>
  </path>

  <taskdef resource="com/idaremedia/antx/install/antlib.xml"
     classpathref="antx.classpath"/>
  <typedef resource="com/idaremedia/antx/valueuri/antlib.xml"
    classpathref="antx.classpath"/>

  <target name="timed-target">
    <assign var="time" op="now"/>
    <echo message="started @ ${$var:time} ms"/>
    <sleep seconds="2"/>
    <assign var="time" op="-now" fromvar="time"/>
    <echo message="duration was ${$var:time} ms"/>
    <copyproperty name="duration" variable="time"
        transform="duration"/>
    <echo message="Duration transformed is ${duration}"/>
  </target>
</project>


OUTPUT:
timed-target:
     [echo] started @ 1185500881950 ms
     [echo] duration was 2003 ms
     [echo] Duration transformed is 2sec.3ms
