Less than five minutes. Especially with Github Pages.

Don't be discouraged though. The first time takes quite a while but once you get the hang of it, setting up simple websites with simple HTML and CSS is a breeze.

Cheers and good luck.

It makes building a website super easy. I suggest you use the Github for Mac or Windows client instead if you are not comfortable in the terminal. I personally use Github for Mac. I simply edit my website with Brackets (code editor), commit my changes on Github for Mac then sync on the top right corner of Github for Mac then my website is updated.

Follow the link I provided in my previous answer. Follow along. It will take a while since it's your first time using Github pages but it won't take you more than 30 minutes to get the hang of it. Then it's super easy.
