Answer

The Attack and Release parameters are not shown in milliseconds like you might expect, they're basically positions in a list of numbers that you're choosing from.  In the "Guitar" menu, on the "Comp" tab you have explicit control over the guitar's compressor, and the menu displays the "Attack" and "Release" parameters as a list of integers from 0 to 19. Below is a chart showing how those parameters relate to the actual internal compressor effect:
